University of Maine System extends chancellor’s contract

University of Maine System Chancellor Dannel Malloy will remain in his position at least through June 2027.

The system’s trustees added two years to Malloy’s contract. Malloy, a former governor of Connecticut, became chancellor in 2019.

In a news release, the system cited Malloy’s creation of the system’s first strategic plan in nearly 20 years among the reasons for his contract extension.

In 2020, Malloy led the system in unifying individual institutional accreditations, allowing universities “to more easily collaborate and combine resources to meet student and state needs,” according to a news release.
