UNE in the News

Mark Nahorney describes UNE’s growing connection to Biddeford in video

mnahorneyMark Nahorney, Dean of Students, was featured in a video interview as a Heart & Soul Minute on the website of the Orton Family Foundation.

Nahorney describes how the foundation’s Heart and Soul program helped to build cultural and social bridges between UNE and the City of Biddeford through the creative use of the arts.

In the interview, Nahorney states that UNE has “started to engage on a whole different level” with Biddeford in the past 4-5 years.  He notes that there are now students on the boards of both the Heart of Biddeford, an organization devoted to Biddeford’s revitalization, and the City Theatre.

Nahorney discusses ways in which UNE brings students into closer contact with downtown Biddeford, mentioning the University’s bus service to downtown, as well as the dining service’s program that allows students to eat in several downtown restaurants as part of their meal plan.

The Orton Family Foundation’s mission is to help people in small cities and towns navigate change in a way that honors their commitment to community.
