The annual service recognition dinner celebrates the commitment of faculty and staff who have worked at Unity College for more than five years.
On November 12, 2015, faculty and staff of Unity College gathered to honor employees for their years of dedicated service, and to recognize the retirements of two in the Unity College family, including President Stephen Mulkey.
Held at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts, more than 150 staff and their families and friends attended the event, full of smiles, anecdotes, toasts, friends, and the culinary artistry of campus catering. Photographs of the event are on Flickr.
The tree was chosen to recognize years of service, in alignment with our mission, our practice of sustainability, and our logo. Years of service are defined by trees indigenous to Maine in addition to their yearly growth rings: 5 Rings - Fire Cherry; 10 Rings - White Birch; 15 Rings - Balsam Fir; 20 Rings - Sugar Maple; 25 Rings - Red Oak.
