Hear what our

students are saying

Although I've worked as a fundraiser within the nonprofit sector for nearly 15 years, until now I've remained unsuccessful in securing government funding. However, after two years of guided scholarly study I learned how to effectively participate in advocacy at the State level, and successfully obtained newly awarded government funding support for the NPO I represent. To me, this grant award represents the impact of the Union Institute & University graduate programs - helping leaders to be more effective, ultimately improving the quality of life for all those impacted by that service.
