Biographical / Historical
The 102nd Maine Legislature in 1965 established the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) as a community-based institution offering associate degrees under the auspices of the University of Maine at Orono. UMA offered courses in the arts, general studies, liberal studies, administration, data processing, criminal justice, and nursing. In 1971, soon after moving to its present location in Augusta, UMA became an autonomous institution, the seventh campus of the University of Maine System. UMA, in that same year, assumed responsibility for providing degree programs and services in the Lewiston-Auburn area.
UMA was designated the “Community College of Maine” in 1986 with responsibility for leading the University of Maine System in the provision of associate degree programs and related services throughout the state. As part of this responsibility, UMA developed a statewide interactive television system as well as a network of over 100 off-campus centers and regional sites, and coordinated the delivery of university programs, courses, and services at these centers and sites. In 1994 this system, now called University College, became an independent administrative entity of the University of Maine System. (In 2008, University College returned to UMA.)
In 1995, the University of Maine System Board of Trustees added UMA Bangor to UMA. In 1995, the Board of Trustees affiliated the Bangor campus with Augusta and Lewiston-Auburn; at the same time the Board also reaffirmed UMA’s role as a provider of selected baccalaureate programs in the Central Maine and Mid-Coast region. While the University is based in Augusta it has campuses across Maine.

Language of Materials
Physically the folders are arranged by subject. Some file names and dates were changed to make them more meaningful and to correct errors. Material was rehoused into archival quality storage. Originally the Other University Of Maine Campuses record groups were stored in their own individual boxes, but the processing archivists consolidated the materials into two boxes to allow for space savings.
Box number has changed:
- Old Box #301 (New Box 1)
The processing archivist appraised the records and destroyed duplicate copies of publications.
Accruals from the University of Maine at Augusta are not anticipated because they have their own library for storing such material.
Processed by Matthew Revitt and student worker Julia Haberstick July 2018, Raymond H. Fogler Library Special Collections Department. Processing involved a collection survey and intellectual arrangement into series and the creation of this finding aid. Material was rehoused into appropriate archival folders and the boxes and folders numbered and titled using information from ArchivesSpace.
