Meet the team

What it means to be a Nor’easter

The University of New England is proud to have a vibrant, innovative, and supportive community. We value our hard working, diverse team of faculty and professional staff who live the UNE mission every day. While visiting any of our three campuses, you will be met by friendly colleagues who inspire and support each other, creating lifelong connections. We invite you to see how incredible being a part of the UNE team is and what it means to be a Nor’easter.

Situated on two beautiful campuses in Biddeford and Portland, Maine, we are committed to maintaining our strong and welcoming community. The people who work and study here are the core of our success, and our local connections run deep. We offer employee wellness and development programs, plus a benefits package that includes medical and dental coverage, life and disability insurance, a retirement plan, leave time, and tuition benefits to promote the health and happiness of you and your family.
