UNITY, Maine (AP) - Unity College says it has become the nation's first college or university to tie every aspect of its curriculum to the mitigation of global climate change.

The college has focused on climate change as an imperative since the arrival of President Stephen Mulkey in 2011.

It says it now integrates "sustainability science" into everything it teaches, so students learn how to mitigate climate change and think about environmental problem-solving no matter which classes they take.

Unity College is a private four-year environmental college in the central Maine town of Unity.
