The Unity College/Up East education and research partnership was started in 2014 as a way to leverage the rich natural and cultural resources of Allen Island toward advancing solutions-oriented research through Sustainability Science.
“Recognize Quality & Celebrate Excellence,” that’s the motto of the Unity College Student Conference. The bi-annual conference gives Unity students the opportunity to present professional level material in a supportive environment.
Statistics show that students who do research during their undergraduate years are more likely to continue with professional education and in STEM fields, and twice as likely to consider continuing on to pursue a Ph.D.
This fall favorite shows Unity at its hard-working hard-playing best. HvZ is a week long game and research project that simulates a Zombie outbreak on campus. Advanced math students use HvZ transmission rate data to prepare models for predicting the behavior of real life diseases like rabies.
