The University of Southern Maine (USM) is a multi-campus public university and part of the University of Maine System. USM's three primary campuses are located in Portland, Gorham, and Lewiston. Originally founded as three separate universities (Gorham Normal School, University of Maine at Portland, Lewiston-Auburn College) the three state universities were combined in the 1980s and 1990's to streamline the public university system in Maine. The Portland Campus is home to the Muskie School of Public Service along with the Bio Sciences Research Institute and the University of Maine School of Law, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the Osher Map Library. The Gorham campus, much more residential is home to the College of Education and the School of Music. At Lewiston-Auburn, students experience a small campus, and, while course offerings are expanding, the focus on this campus is on the liberal arts. Each campus maintains its own "feel" and professionals from all campuses provide a world class experience at this highly regarded Regional University. Among the seven units of the University of Maine System, USM has the highest total number of enrolled students at 10,974 as of the Fall 2005 semester, with an average age of 28.5. USM is among the “best Northeastern colleges,” according to The Princeton Review’s 2006 listings. The current president of USM is Dr. Selma Botman after assuming the role from Dr. Joseph Wood on July 1, 2008 after serving as the Chief Academic Officer at for the CUNY system in New York. Former President Dr. Richard Pattenaude became chancellor of the University of Maine system July 1, 2007.
