There are still no reported cases of the new coronavirus in Maine, but both the University of Maine system and Bowdoin College announced Wednesday that students will no longer be allowed on campuses after spring break in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Both plan to continue classes online for the rest of the semester. Other campuses in the state are watching the situation closely, but are staying open for the time being.

BAR HARBOR, Maine - A College of the Atlantic program that helps students set up sustainable business ventures and receive college credit is getting a $1.5 million grant from a foundation honoring a former Mount Desert Island summer resident.

The grant from the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation will provide the program - called "The Hatchery" - with money for support staff, and seed funding for startups.

To address areas of critical concern for Gulf of Maine islanders,  the Island Institute and the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor are launching a new partnership. 

Funded by a $2 million dollar challenge grant from the Patridge Foundation, the Fund for Maine Islands will be used to seek solutions in four problem areas:  energy, agriculture and food, education, and adaptation to climate change. 

College of the Atlantic President Darron Collins says the program is being endowed to ensure funding over the long haul.
