Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

The Union College mission calls on our community to provide “a rigorous, holistic, and immersive residential liberal education that emphasizes integration, innovation, inclusion, and reflection for every student.” To maintain an environment that is consistent with the mission and values of Union College, the College is committed to equality of education and employment opportunity, and strives to create a campus environment that is inclusive, values diversity, and treats students, faculty, and staff members on the basis of their individual performance and not on the basis of characteristics protected by federal, state, and local law.

Union College is committed to cultivating respect and understanding for all members of the Union College and broader communities, as well as building and supporting a measurably more diverse college community. Union College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex (including pregnancy), religion, creed, national origin (including ancestry), citizenship status, physical or mental disability (including HIV/AIDS), age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, military status, genetic predisposition, domestic violence victim status, or any other protected category under applicable local, state, or federal law. Union also does not discriminate against applicants or employees based on arrest or conviction records. All such discrimination is unlawful and a violation of Union College policy.

In furtherance of its commitment to inclusion, the College works with employees to remove barriers to employment related to an individual’s disability, pregnancy-related condition, religion, or status as a victim of domestic violence.
