Why Maine Maritime Academy graduates are the next big thing
Maine Maritime Academies is looking to expand its maritime academy workforce by adding more than 200 positions to its faculty, according to a memo posted on the school’s website late on Friday.
The school’s chief executive officer said the move is to “re-imagine the maritime academy as an innovative, sustainable, and collaborative place for students to thrive and thrive in.”
“This will create a more diverse and inclusive environment that will better prepare students for the next generation of leaders,” he said in a statement.
The academy has been trying to expand since it opened in 1997.
The first class of the next class will be graduates of the 2016-2017 school year, and the next group of recruits will begin classes in 2019, said the memo.
“The future of the maritime Academy lies in the classroom,” said chief executive officers Patrick Pugh and Scott Kappeler in the memo, released after a public comment period.
“To ensure this vision is realized, the maritime Academies workforce is being increased.
Our goal is to create a thriving maritime academy that reflects the current needs of Maine’s students and future workforce.”
The Maine Maritime Association, which represents about 50,000 graduates, applauded the move.
“This is an important move that will allow us to hire additional staff to support our students and help support our future success,” said Mike Kappes, president of the association.
“Maine’s maritime academy has a lot of potential.
In its 2016-17 fiscal year, the academy had about 14,000 students and more than 20,000 alumni, including 1,000 who are currently on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps. “
While we will miss some of the traditional maritime culture, we will look forward to welcoming new graduates into the maritime family.”

Maine is one of the few states in the country that has a state-run maritime academy.
The Maritime Academy of the Pacific is based in Seattle, Washington, but the school has a partnership with the U,S.
Navy to conduct training at sea.
It also offers an online program called Sailfish, which focuses on the technical aspects of the sea and marine environment.
The Maine academy, which has about 500 students in the maritime program, is currently hiring and is expected to have an enrollment of more than 2,000 by the end of 2019.
The Marine Corps has been recruiting students for more than 50 years, with about 70,000 of its current graduates serving in the Navy and Marine Corps Reserve, the highest number of graduates in the service.
The Navy has also begun recruiting students from Maine’s maritime program.
In 2018, Maine set a goal to have 30,000 recruits by the beginning of 2020.
“We know the sea is a challenging place, and it is even more challenging in this age of climate change,” said Marine Corps Col. Robert H. Roper, who led Maine’s recruiting efforts in 2017.
“With our graduates being able to serve our country in the Marine Corps, and our students serving in Maine’s Maritime Academy, we are ready to help them achieve that goal,” he added.
