The University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI) is one of seven autonomous campuses within the University of Maine System. UMPI combines liberal arts and selected professional programs for 1,400 undergraduates and also serves as a cultural and educational resource for the entire community. The University has adopted an adventurous learning focus that permeates the curriculum, student life, and even the classrooms themselves. The program described in this chapter supports several National Science Education Standards and their visions for needed changes in Teaching Standards, Assessment Standards, and Content and Inquiry Standards.
