MDIBL hosts successful first Homecoming!

  • August 13, 2020

While it wasn’t what we had originally planned, MDIBL’s first formal Homecoming was still a great success!

Amazing alums from a number of different years shared stories and experiences; discussed how their time at Salsbury Cove has influenced them; and happily reconnected with other alums!

Homecoming is all about connection – and we feel more connected to our amazing alumni than ever before. If you missed Homecoming, keep your eye out for future alumni events and a bigger and better (and hopefully in-person!) Homecoming in 2021!

In the meantime, you can watch the recording of our virtual Homecoming sessions:



Welcoming remarks from Hermann Haller, M.D., MDIBL president, and keynote address by Allison Fundis, deep ocean explorer and alumna ’02.


Join Jeri Bowers, MDIBL’s director of development and public affairs, for a stroll around campus… and experience the trials of spotty cellphone reception in Downeast Maine!

Alumni Roundtable – discussing career paths, the “MDIBL effect” and nostalgic memories
