UNITY, Maine — Unity College trustees have accepted the resignation of President Mitchell Thomashow and are launching a national search for a new leader.
Chairman Tim Glidden on Wednesday thanked Thomashow for nearly five years of “exemplary achievement and tireless effort.” He says Unity has grown “in ways that would have been hard to imagine in 2006.”
Unity is a private liberal arts college with an emphasis on the environment. Over the past two years, Thomashow and his wife occupied a 2,000-square-foot home built to the highest green standards.
The 61-year-old came to Unity from Antioch New England Graduate School at Keene, N.H., where he served as chairman of the environmental studies department and associate dean for international advancement.
