About Unity College

Unity College is a one-of-a-kind private college located in the small rural town of Unity, Maine. The campus bustles with active students, faculty, and staff all focusing their passions for the outdoors towards creating an incredible undergraduate experience. The hands-on education here is unlike any other, where the lakes, mountains, bogs, Atlantic ocean, and even roadside streams are all your classrooms. Your hands get dirty and your boots most definitely get muddy. Programs of study range from Environmental Writing to Wildlife Biology to Adventure Education. The opportunities that lie within such a close-knit community are endless as they engage students in their quest to become environmental stewards.

Greetings, and thanks for stopping by!

This blog will recount the research and travels of the Unity College Tropical Marine Ecology Learning Community as we travel to the Institute for Tropical Marine Ecology (ITME) in Rosseau, Dominica, March 13th-22nd.  While there, students will apply their understanding of marine ecology and science writing to create a blog that explores issues including coral ecology, biome populations, and technical writing.  We think it’s going to be great, so check back often!
