The University of Maine is the flagship public institution for Mainers and also one of the oldest universities in the state. Its history dates to 1865, when an act of the Maine legislature created a land grant institution for the purpose of providing higher education and creating an affordable education venue for all of the state's residents. In the nearly 150 years that has followed, the university has established itself as a major center of scholarly research, having been repeatedly recognized by the Carnegie Classifications as a major research institution and an institution with a national reach.
The University of Maine is also a dominant force in New England college athletics, with its Black Bears competing in NCAA Division I athletics. The school's football team is a major member of the Colonial Athletic Association, while its hockey team enjoys membership in Hockey East. The rest of the university's sports teams compete in the America East Conference, where they've enjoyed quite a bit of success over the past couple of years. FansEdge.com is prepared to equip all of Maine's students and fans with the Black Bears gear they need to look the part of a dedicated student, a determined fan, and even a tough player of the college's many sports.
