MDR Influences Potential Name Change of USM

In 2018, MDR worked with USM to explore current perceptions of the University of Southern Maine and potential impacts of a name change. Fast forward to nearly a year later…

Glenn Cummings, USM President, speaks to Newsradio WGAN about the university changing its name from what’s been the University of Southern Maine to what may become University of Southern Maine at Portland.

Mr. Cummings is asked about the reasons why this change is best for USM, and he responds with a perspective that shines light on the longevity of not only USM, but also the state of Maine.

We encourage you to listen below to hear about how MDR’s work has contributed to – what could be – the desired growth for USM, and the state of Maine.
