The University of New England (UNE) is an innovative health sciences university grounded in the liberal arts, with two distinctive coastal Maine campuses and a third campus in Tangier, Morocco. UNE has internationally recognized scholars in the sciences, health, medicine, and humanities; offers more than forty undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs; and is home to Maine’s only medical school and the only college of dental medicine in Northern New England. UNE is one of a handful of private universities with a comprehensive health education mission including medicine, pharmacy, dental medicine, nursing, and an array of allied health professions. Academic programs ensure that students have plenty of opportunities for extensive fieldwork, clinical experiences, research, internships, and global experiences at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
UNE’s 7,795 students are enrolled in a wide variety of academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels in six colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Dental Medicine, the College of Osteopathic Medicine, the College of Pharmacy, the Westbrook College of Health Professions, and the online College of Graduate and Professional Studies. At the undergraduate level, UNE has approximately 2,295 students enrolled, from 27 different states and 16 foreign countries, in more than 40 undergraduate degree programs.
UNE traces its history to 1831 with the founding of Westbrook College, one of Maine’s oldest institutions of learning. Today’s University represents a union of three unique higher education institutions through the combining of St. Francis College and the New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1978 and Westbrook College in 1996.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
