The 2021 Alumni Achievement Awards celebration will be held as a highly produced 90-minute online program in the style and format of the popular CBS Sunday Morning—a collection of feature stories about each of our 2021 honorees. Stories will be narrated by prominent Black Bear alumni such as NPR’s Brian Naylor, UMaine Law School Dean and former Maine Chief Justice Leigh Saufley, and veteran broadcaster Bill Green as well as honorary degree recipient U.S. Senator Susan Collins.

The event’s theme is “Common Threads,” a recognition of how the various lives and careers stories of this year’s honorees intertwine through the experience of attending and graduating from UMaine, “the college of our hearts, always.”
