Unity College

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. In recent years Unity College, America's Environmental College, has gained national attention for a variety of achievements including: adopting sustainability science as a curricular framework, operating at the leading-edge of 21st century ecological problem solving, and being the vanguard in the fight for the mitigation of global climate change. Unity College is the first college in the United States to divest from investments in fossil fuels, an action which ignited a growing national movement in higher education. Unity College students have ample opportunities to pursue research as undergraduates. Through its hands-on experiential approach to learning, Unity College prepares students not only for current environmental careers, but also for careers that are only now being imagined. Students develop skills and experiences that employers prize as they pursue internships across the United States and internationally in countries like Israel, Namibia, Belize, Iceland, and China.
