The University of New England is Maine’s largest private university, an innovative educational community with two distinctive coastal Maine campuses, a vibrant campus in Tangier, Morocco, and a robust offering of degree and certificate programs online. UNE attracts internationally recognized scholars in the health sciences, life sciences, business, education, the social sciences, and the humanities, allowing both our graduate and undergraduate students to engage in research and scholarship alongside dedicated faculty.

As a community, we are committed to creating the future by nurturing well-rounded scholars and professionals who can adapt, prosper, and lead in a rapidly evolving world.
