First held in February 1999, Symposium has grown into a treasured University of Maine Farmington tradition. Each spring, the University community takes a day off from classes and normal routines to share in the exciting work of students.


“UMF’s Symposium showcases what’s possible when you mix student ambition, perseverance, and talent with faculty mentorship and care. We are so proud of everyone’s hard work and accomplishments and how these scholarly efforts inspire and invigorate the entire campus community.”

– Kathryn A. Foster, UMF president



Symposium is organized by the University Culture Committee.
