University of Maine at Fort Kent

Our goal is to be Maine's premier rural public university, educating students to become responsible citizens committed to environmental stewardship through experiential learning.

UMFK is a small campus at the top of Maine on the Canadian border and if you love fishing, hunting, winter sports, kayaking and biking, this is the place to be. Each winter, the town of Fort Kent hosts the annual CanAm Crown Sled Dog race, a qualifier for the Iditarod. This community was the proud site of the 2004 Biathlon World Cup, an event combining nordic skiing and marksmanship. Our success in hosting over 18,000 spectators from around the world led to our recognition as "the little town that could" and the hosting of a second World Cup event here in February 2011. Situated where the Fish River meets the St. John, the Allagash Wilderness is a thirty minute drive from campus along the beautiful St. John Valley. Both alpine skiing and 23 miles of nordic skiing trails are right here. There is no better place to study and enjoy the outdoors. We emphasize experiential learning where you don't just read about facts and ideas - you actually engage in the in the dialogue and get out into the environment.
