Why We're Committed
The University of Maine System (UMS) and the Maine Community College System (MCCS), together with the New England Board of Higher Education and Credential Engine and through a grant from the Lumina Foundation, are providing Mainers with transparent, comparable information about credentials available in the state. Through the partnership, UMS and MCCS have published over 450 credentials to the Credential Registry. The information, which has been mapped to the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL), is helping state leaders identify education and employment pipelines, improve credential portability across state lines, and pinpoint gaps in educational and training programs. Leaders in Maine saw the value of making it easier for all residents to discover information that can lead to better jobs, a better-trained workforce, and more informed decision-making. The result is a transparent, uniform system that allows credential-seekers, employers, education and training providers, and others to retrieve key information more efficiently.
