At Unity, sustainability isn't a buzzword. It's the foundation
of our entire approach and has been for more than 50 years.
We apply sustainability principles to everything we do, from our
properties around the State of Maine, to our online degrees offered
to students everywhere, to our enrichment experiences and
entrepreneurial endeavors at locations from northern Maine to
Arizona to Brazil.

questions, challenge the status quo, and envision new
possibilities. If taking the lead in creating a more sustainable
future sounds like the future you want, we can make it happen.
