Co-Curricular programs give students the opportunity for involvement in educational experiences outside of the classroom. UMFK currently offers three non-credit bearing co-curricular programs which serve to accentuate the student’s skills and abilities and can increase a student’s marketability to prospective employers and graduate schools. Each year, UMFK recognizes every student who has completed the requirements for a co-curricular program at the end of the year Bengal Awards with a Certification of Completion.
Diversity Education and Advocacy Program (DEAP) is a co-curricular development program designed to increase students’ awareness about global diversity and advocacy issues and provide opportunities for experiential learning with diverse communities. The series introduces topics through film, guest speakers, and workshops, the majority of which are virtual.
Throughout the year Career Services offers numerous professional development training and workshops. The Professional Development Series is a great way to build resume skills and connect with local professionals.
UMFK is committed to developing excellent and effective leaders. The University of Maine System Leadership Microbadge is offered in three levels and allows students to advance their knowledge and skills with regard to effective intellectual and cultural leadership.
