Developing Students Beyond the Classroom

The Whole U


The Powering Union campaign is facilitating intentional connections between what happens inside and outside the classroom, allowing students to develop a deeper understanding of their world and the role they play in shaping its future. From athletics and our evolving residential curriculum to career advising and wellness services, the campaign bolsters every student’s educational journey through deliberate and meaningful interactions guided by faculty and staff.

Undergraduate research: An invaluable experience

“Conducting undergraduate research really helped me build the foundation of my science identity,” said Jared Mondschein ’14, who majored in chemistry. “It made me feel like I could be a part of the scientific community.”

"Higher education is at crossroads, times are challenging. But Union is striving to find solutions that better serve our communities, country and world.

As alumni, we must do our part to ensure that Union continues to be a leader. Our giving provides young people with the opportunity of a lifetime—the Union College experience."
