UNE Magazine

Cover for the 2022 U N E Magazine

Rising inflation, political polarization, and economic disparity; the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and the war in Ukraine; and continued emergence of social justice issues. As society becomes increasingly chaotic and divided, UNE faculty, administration, and professional staff must answer the question, “How do we prepare students to succeed in a fractured society?”

That topic, with all its many challenges and creative solutions, is the focus of the brand new 2022 UNE Magazine. You'll also meet some of our marine science students, attend a climate-change conference, tour our newest building (in progress), and journey to Bangladesh — plus hockey, Homecoming, and more.
