University of Maine President Clarence Little and Carolyn Colvin, Dean of Women, founded the All Maine Women Honor Society in 1925. Members of the society are distinguished leaders, scholars, and outstanding female role models, are active in community service, display MAINE spirit, and have the potential for continued service to UMaine. All Maine Women is the highest all-inclusive honor society to which a University of Maine woman can belong and AMW are pledged to uphold and promote the ideals, standards and traditions of the University. Members can be distinguished by their special pins, sweaters and small pine trees worn on their right cheeks one day each week. Members are considered the consummate role models for UMaine women.
The All Maine Women Alumnae Affinity Group Strives to:
- Create a network for All Maine Women alumnae to stay connected to the University of Maine and provide opportunities to seek professional development and networking.
- Maintain and foster connections with alumnae and current members who symbolize the roots and branches of our All Maine Women family tree.
- Provide financial resources to the current class so they may more completely fulfill their roles as leaders and philanthropists in the community.
- Raise awareness of the All Maine Women on campus through interactions with faculty and staff, as well as through guidance and support of the current class.
