Lozanov plans to include office space, a functional theater for musical and theatrical performances, creative spaces that are open to the public, cooperative rental housing, and a restaurant. Although the infrastructure is in place for many of these intended uses, some restoration work is needed.

Khoury assumes presidency of Unity College

Higher education leader tapped to continue innovation at America's Environmental College

UNITY When Dr. Melik Peter Khoury assumes the presidency at Unity College this morning, he will bring in an international and innovative perspective to the highest office at America's Environmental College.

Khoury's goals include continuing the school's positive four-year enrollment trend, continuing to upgrade and repurpose student-centered facilities for their highest and best use, expanding access to a Unity College education to nontraditional learners of all ages, nationalities and creeds, and realigning the administration to inculcate sustainability and 'leadership in abundance' at every level of the operation.

No matter what industry, most organizations experience a business crisis at some point in their existence whether it might be a data breach, a viral social media slam or a mass email glitch. The best way to deal with a crisis, of course, is to anticipate and prevent it with a solid crisis management plan. Even without a plan, however, a crisis doesn't have to be disastrous to your brand.

In fact, if handled gracefully, it may earn your brand even more loyalty and support in the long run.

What is your mission?

Written by Deb Neuman

Deal breakers. We all have them especially when talking about relationships. But we should also have them when it comes to our business and professional lives. Not only should we have them we should know what they are! I once interviewed Ben & Jerry's and learned that the ice cream they've been making and we've loved for years is much more than ice cream.

Let kids play

Written by Deb Neuman

This column is dedicated to all the parents who let their kids be who they are. 

Last week I boarded a plane from New York City back to Maine. I sat next to a nice young man and we began to chat. I soon learned that he was returning home to Maine from a business trip to South Carolina. I asked him what kind of work he did, to which he replied, 'I'm a traveling pastry chef.' I was intrigued.

When cupid strikes

Written by Deb Neuman

We've all heard the saying, 'Cupid will strike when you're not looking.' I'm not entirely sure that's true although it all remains very much a mystery to me. What I do know is that inspiration often strikes when we least expect it. I discovered this recently as I was working on a new design for my jewelry business. I've been struggling with an idea for months. I had a design idea in my head, but the process of bringing it to life just seemed to miss the mark for one reason or another. Design is much like love it can't be forced. It's either right or it isn't. So it's been many months of trying then failing repeatedly. This has left me with scores of materials that will be tossed out and many hours of time invested.
