University of Southern Maine and UMaine Professors each receive separate distinctions for their work

Susan Feiner, a now retired University of Southern Maine Professor, has been honored with the prestigious 2018-19 Maryann Hartman Award. The Maryann Hartman Award is awarded annually to someone who represents “the best and brightest Maine women leaders.”

Feiner was nominated by multiple colleagues who highlighted her career’s work and contributions in advocacy and work in Women and Gender Studies and economics.

The Maryann Hartman Awards Ceremony will be held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 5:30 pm in the Buchanan Alumni House at the University of Maine in Orono. Retired Professor Susan Feiner will be present to receive the award.

At the University of Maine at Orono, Professor Sandy Caron was selected by the Associated Faculties of the University of Maine to receive the University of Maine’s 2019 Distinguished Maine Faculty Award. It is the top honor a UMaine faculty member can receive. The award recognizes the highest qualities of teaching, research and public service.

Caron is a professor of family relations and human sexuality at the University of Maine. She is also a member of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies faculty.

“The Maine Education Association is proud of both Feiner and Caron on these most distinguished accomplishments. Public university professors like Feiner and Caron exemplify the high quality educators at Maine’s university system who offer our students an education that allows them professional growth as they transition from college to the workplace,” said Grace Leavitt, President of the MEA.
