A Union of differences

Union's inclusive campus

Since its earliest days, Union has been an innovator in the movement to support multicultural and multi-faith organizations on college campuses. The very name "Union" comes from the founders' commitment to inclusion.

In today's increasingly interconnected world, developing cultural competency and embracing differences is essential to success.

At Union, you'll be encouraged to challenge yourself and your way of thinking. In fact, interacting with students, faculty members and others from a variety of backgrounds is one of the most important dimensions of your college experience. These influences will help you grow and expand. Ethnic and cultural diversity enrich our student life, academic programs and campus activities. You'll also experience diversity based on race, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and national origin.
