School Information
"With enrollment at around 1,600 full-time students, UMF is about the same size as many of New England’s most selective private colleges and offers many of the same advantages, yet at a very affordable price — providing a tremendous college value in a spectacular natural setting. Established in 1864 as Maine’s first public institution of higher education, the University of Maine at Farmington is a founding member of The Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) an exclusive national group of public colleges and universities committed to providing superior liberal arts and sciences education" (Source: https://www.umf.maine.edu/about/). The school has a student to faculty ratio of 11 to 1. Furthermore, 33 undergraduate degrees, 28 majors, and 17 fields of study are offered.
General Information
The university has not yet implemented Critical Race Training, however it is likely that this will be a future next step. At this time, UMF has created a DEI Strategic Plan. A curriculum restructuring is underway as part of the overarching goals for the University of Maine system. See developments below:

Actions Taken

Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • In the 2021-2022 academic year, UMF planned to create its University-wide DEI Strategic Plan for Fall 2022. This plan involves "programs that are geared towards fostering an inclusive environment" as well as "recruitment, retention, and diversity goals."
Curriculum Changes and Requirements
  • As part of "Reimagining Farmington," the school will ensure the curriculum reflects social justice and DEI principles consistent with the UMS system.
