The Republican governor is scheduled to speak at the inauguration ceremony on Tuesday.

Twenty three students have been studying there since January.

U.S. Ambassador to Morocco Dwight Bush, Sr. is also expected to attend the ceremony for UNE’s campus, which is the only American higher education institution in the country.

LePage’s office said last month that the governor will also seek trade opportunities for Maine during his trip.

The governor is expected to return to Maine later this week ahead of the state’s Republican party convention, which kicks off in Bangor on Friday.
