Biographical / Historical

The Faculty and Professional Association was founded in 1971 with Brooks Hamilton as the Association's first president. The Association's purpose was to represent the needs and interests of all professional staff at the University of Maine, specifically insuring adequate and equitable compensation for its members, maintaining proper academic freedom and personal rights, keeping its membership informed of impending administrative and legislative acts that are of concern to them, and in an influential way, presenting the faculty's views and desires to both administrations and legislatures. The Association dissolved on November 13, 1979 with remaining funds given to the Associated Faculties of the University of Maine (AFUM) and the University of Maine Professional Staff Association (UMPSA).
