"People get it: Unity College is solidly rooted in the experience of Maine. The State of Maine has a palpable sense of place and we want students from across the country, and around the world, to share this amazing resource with us." - Dr. Melik Peter Khoury, President Unity College
Unity College is founded fundamentally on the concept of place. The state of Maine is a living ecological laboratory of fields, farms, forests, ponds, rivers and oceanfront. Our residential campus is intrinsic to our identity, our history, and our values as America’s Environmental College.
Throughout their Unity College careers, students experience myriad opportunities to get down and dirty with mother nature. Whether it’s sampling seaweed on Allen Island, trapping bears in the Woods of central Maine, studying microplastics in the waters of our oceans, determining optimum woodlot production for a small woodlot owner, or studying storm drainage in the town of Unity, our students travel all over the state providing useful service everywhere they go.
Around the state, Unity College has brought students into the field for research in numerous ways. Click on the interactive map below to discover more:
