Throughout February 2023 we are celebrating Women in Sports month, an annual event made even more special this year as the nation joins in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX. Since 1972, this amendment has prohibited discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities, including athletics, that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX played a large role in providing several opportunities for women, paving the way for all-americans, champions, record holders, and pioneers over the past 50 years at UMaine.

To honor the 50th anniversary of Title IX and celebrate our former female student-athletes and the future of women’s athletics at UMaine we invite you to make a gift to support your favorite team.

2022 Annual Report

2022 Annual Report

The annual report theme is “Our Journey”.

As alumni and friends of the University of Maine, we have shared a similar journey from the time we crossed one of the bridges that led us to our first encounter with the University of Maine in Orono. Although our paths are all quite different, the journey has taken us to this place—one where we have a desire to give back and support the many things we love about the college of our hearts, always. This special place continues to have a hold on us. Generations of us have made a difference for those who have traveled those bridges behind us and generations will continue the journey after us.
