AUGUSTA, ME—The Maine Community College System is pleased to welcome former Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy as the next Chancellor of the University of Maine System.
“I look forward to working with Chancellor Malloy in his new role, building on the collaborative and innovative work between our two systems that has been a hallmark of Chancellor Page’s tenure,” MCCS President David Daigler said. “Our partnership with the university system is critical for developing new and better ways to enhance the educational and economic health of our state.”

“Jim has been a valued and thoughtful colleague in developing Maine’s higher education landscape, deepening the ties between our systems to the benefit of Maine students looking to expand their learning opportunities,” Daigler said.

Leaders of the university and community college systems in Maine work closely to offer a breadth of educational and job training options for Maine’s people. In recent years, the university and community college systems have implemented a comprehensive and far reaching transfer agreement that is designed to reduce college costs for Maine students and speed their time to degree completion.
