Welcome

Photo of Monique LaRocque outside Chadbourne HallIt is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the University of Maine’s Division of Lifelong Learning.  DLL, as we are fondly known, is home to many programs and services designed to increase access to UM’s wide range of degree and certificate options, as well as to expand opportunities for our communities to take advantage of UM’s beautiful campus facilities.  From our early college programs, like Academ-e, to our signature UMaineOnline undergraduate and graduate degrees, from our conference services and event planning, to our outreach Hutchinson Center in Belfast, we offer many ways for you to be a part of our expanded UM community!

If you have always wanted to finish your degree, start a graduate program, or stay on track with 30 credits per year, we can help.   Alternatively, if you or your organization is looking for a new place to host an event, consider UM’s Orono or Belfast campuses.

There is a lot more going on in DLL, so I invite you to explore our website to learn more about us, and the ways we are innovating to bring the highest quality programs and services to the people we serve.  We look forward to hearing from you and learning how we can best support your goals!
