Maine is in constant competition with other states and the world to build and retain a talented workforce that can succeed in emerging industries shaped by new technology. Investments in Maine’s people and education system keep Maine competitive, grow our skilled workforce, and position us to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic with a thriving economy that attracts new businesses and empowers people to make a good living.

Through the Maine Jobs & Recovery Plan, the University of Maine System will expand experiential learning opportunities that prepare students for success in Maine careers, upgrade research and teaching facilities necessary for training Maine’s 21st century workforce, and strengthen business partnerships that spark new innovations for Maine’s economy.
