BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A new associate of science degree in allied health at the University of Maine at Fort Kent is on the agenda when the university system's trustees meet.
The board gathers Monday at the University of Southern Maine's Portland campus.
The trustees are scheduled to act on several items, including the new degree at Fort Kent. The degree is to help address statewide workforce needs.
The board will also take up a biennial state budget request for fiscal 2014-15, renaming the Campus Center at the University of Maine at Augusta the "Alumni Center," and naming a new UMaine planetarium the "Emera Astronomy Center" for a 20-year period.
This will mark the first meeting for two trustees recently appointed by Gov. Paul LePage: James Erwin of Yarmouth and Mark Gardner of Kittery.
