Diversity Programs

Union’s size allows us to provide a supportive environment in which students develop academically, socially and personally through meaningful interactions with individuals from a variety of backgrounds. We provide a differentiating blend of intellectual, social and cultural opportunities to facilitate that development and to support our diverse community of students.

Getting to Know Union Weekend

Getting To Know U is a pre-college experience that occurs in the fall each year.  This program is designed for high school seniors from diverse cultural backgrounds to experience all that Union has to offer. Prospective students will have the chance to experience what life is like for students at Union as well as the opportunity to interact with current students and professors, attend classes, eat in our dining halls and explore campus.

Application information is typically available in late summer. All students admitted into the program will have their food and lodging costs covered. Students from NYC will have transportation provided to and from Union.  Students coming from other areas should contact Vernon Castillo to inquire about transportation possibilities.
