Facilities and Research

College of the Atlantic is rich in unique educational facilities. Our location on Mount Desert Island provides access to Acadia National Park and our own research stations on Great Duck Island and Mount Desert Rock.

COA has two organic farms, and our collaboration with Jackson Lab and Mount Desert Island Biological Lab through the INBRE program expand our scientific resources into world-renowned laboratories.

Additionally, we have on campus our library, natural history museum, GIS lab, Center for Applied Human Ecology, and art gallery.

All provide first-rate educational opportunities to students, faculty and staff.
