Unity College was founded as Unity Institute in an old hen house in 1966, and experienced financial troubles throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The school had dropped some liberal arts offerings during the 1980s, and strengthened its natural sciences offerings as part of an effort to recruit students interested in environmental studies. Unity College now offers a four-year degree in aquaculture and a program in conservation law enforcement IT has an endowment of more than $1 million. Wilson Hess, who first came to Unity College in 1977, was brought back in 1990 to serve as president, and many consider him responsible for the school's turnaround. Details.
