Service Opportunity: Food Recovery
The success of the Black Bear Exchange food pantry is due, in part, to a food recovery program. Donations made by the University of Maine dining halls are collected by sustainability-focused student groups such as The Green Team and Green Campus Initiative (GCI). The student volunteers love and appreciate that the program addresses both social and environmental sustainability. Time and sign up link here
Williams Hall Dedication
We will dedicate Beryl Warner Williams Hall on our campus. Beryl Warner Williams was born in Bangor, Maine and graduated from Bangor High School. In 1935, Williams was the first Black University of Maine graduate to earn a mathematics degree. Five years later, she also received a master’s degree in mathematics from UMaine. Time: 2 p.m.
