On May 6-7, 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr. came to visit our Biddeford, Maine campus when it was St. Francis College for the “I Have a Dream” symposium. He was joined by other distinguished civil rights leaders. Today, we continue to celebrate Reverend King's legacy and incredible ability to enact change. This Wednesday, January 23rd, we will host Dr. Angela Davis for her talk entitled "Freedom is a Constant Struggle" from 12pm-2pm in the University of New England Harold Alfond Forum. The event is free and open to the public, and we encourage all to attend. "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King, Jr. . . . . . #UniversityofNewEngland #StFrancisCollege #StFrancis #College #MLKDay #MartinLutherKingJr #IHaveADream #MLK #MLKjr #MLK #socialjustic #socialchange #equality #UNE #WeAreUNE

A new group of students just arrived at our Tangier, Morocco campus last week to start off their semester of study abroad. In their first week of orientation, they began with an introduction of Moroccan society and culture with our beloved campus staff members Mourad and Doua followed by an afternoon of dorm shopping and an evening of convocation. They also enjoyed their first Moroccan meal, experiencing new foods and then dancing on into the evening together. Then they took a beautiful coastal drive and met camels, explored museums including the Kasbah Museum and the American Legation, did a scavenger hunt within the Médina, enjoyed a live Moroccan soccer game, took a hike in a Tangier park, and more. Follow their adventures this semester at @unemorocco and learn more about study abroad options from @uneglobal. . . . . . #UniversityofNewEngland #UNE #WeAreUNE #UNEMorocco #Morocco #Tangier #Global #StudyAbroad #UNEGlobal #Travel #TravelAbroad #GlobalEducation #GlobalEd #International #Africa

"The area of the Arctic Ocean covered with ice oscillates in temperature wildly from year to year, but when examined by graph, the general trend is obvious. The variation in the carbon dioxide levels has been the most drastic in the past 100 or so years." - Henry Smith, Professor Emeritus of MIT at last week's lecture titled "Adventures, Climate Concerns, and Medical Care in Arctic Nunavik" hosted by the Student Physicians for Social Responsibility club of @com_at_une on our Biddeford Campus. . . . . . #UniversityofNewEngland #UNE #Nunavik #Arctic #climatechange #health #lecture #professor #research #gradschool #collegelife #studentlife #medicalschool #medschool

Samantha Schultz worked at @westpoint_usma last summer with @com_at_une grad Michael Labare looking at carboxylic acids as "green chemistry" alternatives to inhibit antibiotic-resistant bacteria. President @james.herbert heard about Sam's work at the Fall Research Symposium this past semester. Sam is a senior undergraduate student majoring in medical biology on the pre-PA track with minors in neuroscience and chemistry. . . . . . #UniversityofNewEngland #UNE #WeAreUNE #GreenChemistry #Chemistry #Research #WestPoint #StudentLife #StudentResearch #PosterSession #FallResearchSymposium #ResearchSymposium #PrePA #MedicalBiology #MedBio #Maine #ME #EducationinMaine

🌊A group of our undergraduate environmental students has teamed up with Kennebunk High School on a project on Goat Island off the coast of Kennebunk, Maine. The idea of the project is to work together to find alternative energy sources to power the island's lighthouse and keeper's house.

The fifth and final episode of 100 Questions with UNE President James Herbert in link in bio! Find out what his response is to breaking the law!?! #100questionswithJDH #universityofnewengland #highered #universitypresident
Often when we try to spend quality time with our aging relatives, it can be difficult to know how to make the most of that time. What questions do you ask your father, your grandmother, to really get to know them? Our student and faculty researchers designed a board game to bring families closer together, and they are getting ready to test the prototype by bringing it home for the holidays to play with their families. “Family Get Together” is based on research from Tom Meuser, the head of UNE's new Center for Excellence in Aging and Health. His research found that when it comes to someone's legacy, children have very little understanding of who their parents believe themselves to be and how they think they will be remembered. In the game, players journey along different paths to a family reunion, learning about each other along the way. . . . . . #UniversityofNewEngland #UNE #WeAreUNE #Aging #Excellence #CenterForAgingAndExcellence #BoardGame #BoardGames #Games #Holidays #HappyHolidays #Holiday #FamilyTime #Family
