Parent Community Conversations

Union has scheduled a series of winter term community conversations specifically for parents.

The conversations will be hosted by the Class Deans, with registration required. Please save these dates for the sessions. All are set for 7 p.m.:

Planning for Templeton Institute is inclusive

Professor Jennifer Currey is leading the planning and implementation for a program that will do more than strengthen engineering and computer science.
