About Unity College:
The Unity College mission:
Through the framework of sustainability science, Unity College provides a liberal arts education that emphasizes the environment and natural resources. Through experiential and collaborative learning, our graduates emerge as responsible citizens, environmental stewards, and visionary leaders.For over fifty years, Unity College has been preparing the next generation of environmental professionals and leaders to successfully face real-world challenges. We believe that we should serve a broad range of learners from all backgrounds across the U.S. and the world. To be responsive to the rapidly changing needs of students and society, Unity College adopted an Enterprise Model as its operational structure in 2017. This structure created distinct Sustainable Education Business Units (SEBUs) that function independently with dedicated leadership, and an Enterprise Administration that provides centralized oversight and shared services support.
Unity College currently has three SEBUs - Distance Education, Flagship, and Sustainable Ventures. Because of this structure, we can be more proactive in addressing the needs of our current and future audiences, including learners, clients, and partners.
Unity College: Flagship
Our Flagship SEBU is the main campus in Unity, Maine, offering our students a traditional residential college experience with 16-degree programs that use active, hands-on learning while providing an immersive experience. Our liberal arts curriculum is built upon a unique framework of sustainability science, the first of its kind in the nation. A distinctive approach to learning and forward-thinking faculty provide our students with an exceptional, high-quality education, enabling them to drive real change and make a mark on the world.
Unity College: Distance Education
Our Distance Education
SEBU extends the reach of a Unity College education to non-traditional students by offering fully accredited bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and non-degree credits online. The faculty in this SEBU are leading experts in their professional fields. Learners use their everyday environment as their laboratory and incorporate their classes into their daily lives, making this education ideal for working professionals seeking to advance their careers and become the change makers the world needs while still honoring their commitments, wherever they are.
Unity College: Sustainable Ventures
The Sustainable Ventures SEBU is the newest of the SEBUs and while it is still evolving, each venture is a real-life revenue-generating manifestation of the academic curriculum. This SEBU simultaneously builds our brand, diversifies revenue alternatives, fuels economic development, and provides a variety of hands-on learning/credit opportunities for students that are not funded primarily by Unity College tuition. Current ventures include: Sky Lodge, McKay Farm & Research Station, the Campus Store, and Conference and Event Services.
