Professional Development Program Proposals
Have an idea for a professional development program you’d like to offer at the Hutchinson Center (online or in-person)?
We’re actively seeking proposals for professional development programs in the following areas:
- Customer Service
- Early Childhood Education/Childcare
- Human Resources
- Trauma-informed Management/Workplaces
- Recruiting, Cultivating & Sustaining a Diverse Workplace
- Industry-specific trainings
- Real Estate
- Project Management
Though we are seeking proposals addressing the areas listed above we are happy to consider other topics.
Whether offered online or in-person, our programs tend to be instructor-led, interactive and synchronous (not pre-recorded or self-paced).
Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), immigrants, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ and veterans are strongly encouraged to submit proposals. Instructors do not need to be residents of Maine nor based in Maine in order to be considered.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com or 207.338.8002.
If this form is inaccessible to you for any reason, you’re welcome to send a separate document to us that includes responses to all the questions listed in the form.
You will receive a copy of your proposal via email when you submit it to us, however, we recommend writing your answers in another document and cutting and pasting them into this form, just in case you lose power/internet connectivity/who knows what!

The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, where issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot homeland is connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. The university also recognizes that the Penobscot Nation and the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.
