UMPI says, "By providing a foundation of information and skills, the General Education Curriculum (GEC) insures that the graduate not only has knowledge of a major field but also the flexibility to think critically and argue persuasively on a range of issues relevant to personal and professional life. Critical and conceptual thinking, sensitivity to the multiplicities of human experience, and acquisition of technical skills are pervasive throughout the educational experience at the University of Maine at Presque Isle."
