University of New England
#UNE is recognized as one of the top-tier comprehensive universities in the Northeast. #PortlandMaine :
We are proud to announce that we have been named as one of the 399 most environmentally responsible colleges according to @theprincetonreview
. The education services company known for its test preparation and tutoring services, books, and college rankings features UNE in the 2018 edition of its book, The Princeton Review Guide to 399 Green Colleges, which was published on October 16.
The Princeton Review chose the schools for this ninth annual edition of its "green guide" from hundreds of four-year colleges, selecting those schools that demonstrate a deep commitment to the environment and sustainability. This is the second year in a row that UNE has made the list. Link in bio for more information.

"I am currently living my dream doing an internship in Key Largo, Florida training therapy dolphins! Another previous UNE animal behavior graduate interned here, which is how I found out about this opportunity. Every single day I get to be hands on with the dolphins, practicing classical and operant conditioning techniques. Everything I learned in my animal behavior classes at UNE applies to what I do here and this internship has confirmed animal training is the career path for me. It’s not all glamorous--there is a lot of handling of dead fish and cleaning, but every second spent with the dolphins makes it worth it!" - Alyssa Kaufold (UNE '18, B.S. in Animal Behavior) #UniversityOfNewEngland #AnimalBehavior #Dolphins #DolphinTraining #KeyLargo #Florida
This week in Innovation Hall on our Portland Campus, we hosted the 2018 Maine Gubernatorial Debate with @portlandpressherald

New data picked up by acoustic receivers set up off the Maine coast by James Sulikowski of @sulikowskilab
here at UNE indicate an increased presence of white sharks in the area. The story was recently featured in the @portlandpressherald
and on WCSH. Sulikowski detected a 12-foot great white shark near his only acoustic receiver in Maine, which is located off Stratton Island about a mile away from Old Orchard Beach. The shark was originally tagged by researchers on Cape Cod, MA, earlier this year. #UniversityofNewEngland #MarineScienceResearch #MarineScience #Research #Sharks
International Coastal Cleanup Day is a global event started by @oceanconservancy
to lead the way in cleaning up our world's oceans. On Saturday, September 15, a group of about 50 of our students boarded UNE’s R/V Sakohki boat behind the Biddeford Campus and made the short trip to Camp Ellis. By taking part in this day, they joined volunteers from across the United States and more than 100 countries. They picked up nearly 400 pounds of trash from Camp Ellis Beach. @SustainableUNE #UniversityofNewEngland #InternationalCoastalCleanupDay #SustainableUNE
🐿️ Our Project Squirrel research program started with a simple question: "Is the squirrel that I see everyday outside my window the same squirrel?" This question has since grown into an ecological research program conducted by students on our Biddeford Campus. Using mark-recapture techniques and radio telemetry, students explore movement patterns and survival of the Eastern Gray Squirrel on campus and in the surrounding community. These are the data points of all of our tagged friends on campus thanks to Project Squirrel. 📷cred: @squirrelsofune #UniversityofNewEngland #ProjectSquirrel #SquirrelResearch #Squirrels
We are delighted to announce the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent to Srinidi Mohan, Ph.D., associate professor in the UNE College of Pharmacy for his methods and diagnostics for cancer detection and treatment monitoring. Mohan received the patent for his research, which uses a marker in the blood to detect the presence of highly aggressive tumors and to help track cancer growth. Discovered while studying nutritional supplements, Mohan found that the marker Nw-hydroxy-L-Arginine (NOHA) was both a sensitive and reliable indicator for estrogen receptor-negative (ER–) tumors, the most aggressive types of breast cancer. Congrats, Srinidi. #UniversityofNewEngland #patent #breastcancer #breastcancerresearch #research
