The University of Maine at Farmington will inaugurate its 14th president, Kathryn A. Foster, during its 150th anniversary year.
The inauguration will take place at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, on the UMF campus.
The event is a landmark in the university’s long history of distinguished leadership and ushers in the promise of the next 150 years for UMF — the birthplace of public higher education in Maine.
As is tradition, the installation will begin with an academic procession led by fellow University of Maine System presidents, UMF faculty and nearly 50 delegates from esteemed institutions across the country.
