The Strategic Plan in Action


The 2013 Strategic Plan will further Union's mission as a scholarly community that educates students to be engaged, innovative and ethical contributors to an increasingly diverse, global and technologically complex society.

The plan represents the collective vision of the Union community in how to best build on our strengths to make the College a distinctive and continually improving institution. Just as we did in 2007, we have divided the plan into foundational elements and differentiators that provide a clear and compelling path to ensure that Union remains the college of choice for highly qualified students, faculty and staff.


  • Academic Quality
  • The Learning Environment
  • Sustainable Stewardship of Resources


  • An Academic Village that Reflects the Diversity of the World
  • Integrative Thought and Action for the 21st Century
  •  A Distinctive Past Connected to an Innovative and Creative Future


Highlights of the 2013 Strategic Plan can be viewed through the lens of three essential components of a Union College education: the ability to think, connect and act.
