Unity College is built on the Enterprise Model and is comprised of three Sustainable Education Business Units (SEBUs).  Two SEBUs focus on academics and the third is a group of individual revenue generating businesses which are the real-world manifestation of our curriculum.

Our academic SEBUs include Distance Education which provides a strictly online education, and Hybrid Learning offers students online or face to face learning with a residential experience. For the 2020-21 academic year all classes will be taught online due to the COVID-19 pandemic using the Hybrid Learning platform.
