Adult and Higher Education The On-line Adult and Higher Education program believes that change is best accomplished through education. Our mission is, first and foremost, to address our student’s individual learning needs and provide them opportunities to become the best adult educators they can.

The University of Southern Maine has honored the extraordinary life and work of Gerald E. Talbot, Maine’s first African-American legislator, with the creation of a new teaching fellow, Dr. Lance Gibbs, who is examining race in Maine.

To help adult students navigate the path to a degree, the University of Maine System has established local “navigators” to help our adult students understand the terminology, complete the application process, apply for scholarships, and enroll in classes. Our navigators will help students achieve their educational goals through activities.

The University of Southern Maine (USM) is a multi-campus public comprehensive university and part of the University of Maine's three primary campuses are located in Portland, Gorham and Lewiston in the U.S. state of courses and degree programs are also offered online.
