Additional Information
MISSION STATEMENT To serve the academic needs of a diverse student body in a dynamic, personal environment that promotes intellectual, spiritual, and physical enrichment of our campus community; the economic growth and health of our Appalachian region; and, a just society. Approved by the Union College Board of Trustees, April 30, 2021.


Union College is a nationally known community of learners whose graduates are distinguished contributors to the well-being of the individual, the economy, and the environment.



We celebrate the unique gift each brings to our community and the successes of each person. We look for and recognize promise in others, in ourselves, in our region, and in the world.


We strive to do what is right. We promote integrity and collaboration by actively listening, sharing information, and being honest.


We take responsibility for our own success and failure and for our role as global citizens.


We advocate civility in all our interactions. We show respect for each other and hold ourselves and others accountable.

Lifelong Learning

We embrace the love of discovery and foster collaborative, connected, and active lifelong learning.


We promote leadership and service as our civic responsibility. We strive to become servant-leaders. We honor, and are active participants in, the life of our home region and beyond.


We encourage the spiritual quest. We challenge each other to discover, intellectually articulate, and embrace a life-affirming spiritual faith and/or philosophy of life. C.I.R.C.L.E.S. Ceremony and Tradition

New students begin their journey at Union College with a ceremony that outlines each of the College's core values and culminates in a faculty, staff, or community member presenting each one with a medallion depicting the College seal. As they prepare to graduate, students complete the circle by presenting the medallion to someone who encouraged and supported them during their college career.

These core values lie at the heart of Union College's mission and are echoed daily in each and every undertaking of the College.

The connection is further evident in our trustees? commitment to generations of Union students with assurance that 100 percent of our students receive grants and scholarships to alleviate concerns of financing a liberal arts education.

We encourage all of our students to find the warmth that comes in sharing our Appalachian culture and traditions - to find the peace that comes with a breath of mountain air while enjoying our natural surroundings; to kindle the bonds of friendship created here to last a lifetime and to light up the classroom with an enthusiasm for learning and a bright vision of their future.

Union College students want to change their worlds, to improve not only their lives and futures, but also their families? circumstances and their communities. Doing that takes drive, strength and faith.

No matter what you’re interested in studying, there’s a school on the list for you.
