BANGOR — The University of Maine System has named three finalists for the top job at the Farmington campus.

Marjorie Medd, a UMS trustee who leads the search committee, said Wednesday that the three finalists will visit the University of Maine at Farmington next month.

The finalists are Christopher Ames, assistant to the president at Washington College in Chestertown, Md.; Charlotte Borst, vice president of academic affairs and dean of faculty at Whittier College in California; and Kathrin Foster, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.

President Theodora Kalikow announced last year that she will retire as president of UMF at the end of June, after 18 years with the institution.
