The University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast is staffed by a small number of people dedicated to helping you further your educational goals. If you need advising, help signing up for courses, or someone to talk to about where to begin, then Student Services Coordinator Jose Cordero III is your man!

Jose graduated from Rockland District High School in 1995 and after earning his B.A. Music and M.Ed in Higher Education from the University of Maine. He stayed at his alma mater to work in Undergraduate Admissions, Academic Advising and most recently in Student Affairs as the Director of Multicultural Programs. Jose is passionate about students and their aspirations for higher education in Maine and believes there is no better place in the state than the Midcoast area to begin pursuing a UMaine degree.

On his days off Jose enjoys being on the water, taking long road trips, or being with his family. Jose wed his college sweetheart Maida in 2001 and they welcomed their child, Luis, in 2007 and his second son, Max, this summer.
