University Press of New England (UPNE) is supported by a consortium of member institutions: Brandeis University, Dartmouth College, and Northeastern University.
Founded in 1970, UPNE is a unique publishing consortium based at Dartmouth College, the host institution, and has earned a reputation for excellence in scholarly, instructional, reference, literary and artistic, and general-interest books. Many of these are published cooperatively with one of the member institutions and carry a joint imprint. Others are published under the University Press of New England (UPNE) imprint. And in Spring 2014, the press introduced ForeEdge, a new imprint of titles for national audiences.
The publishing program reflects strengths in the humanities, liberal arts, fine, decorative, and performing arts, literature, New England culture, and interdisciplinary studies. The Press publishes and distributes more than eighty titles annually, with sales of more than $2.5 million. A professional staff of twenty-four maintains high standards in editorial, design and production, marketing, order fulfillment, and business operations.
