May 15, 2015 – Tom Mullin (’80 B.S. forestry and wildlife), associate professor of parks and forest resources at Unity College in Maine, was one of three professors in the state to receive the Donald Harward Award. Presented by the Maine Campus Compact, an organization that works with member colleges to encourage the engagement of students in solving problems in their local community, the award recognizes faculty who integrate community or public service into the curriculum. Recipients must demonstrate reflection, community benefit, and a reciprocal relationship between the community and the college.

Mullin is a founder and lifetime member of the National Association for Interpretation, a nonprofit organization aimed at educating the public on nature through museums and visitor centers. Mullin has long acted as a link between real-life projects and academics. Prior to teaching at Unity College, he worked in park agencies, environmental learning centers, and local school programs.

“Students across all program majors at Unity College need not only a solid academic foundation but also as much practical, hands on, experiential work experience in order to make them viable candidates in an increasingly competitive work environment,” said Mullin.
