The Alumni Association

Founded to serve the Union Alumni community

Promoting the values, heritage, traditions, and evolving goals of Union

Union’s Alumni Association strives to represent its constituency as an active part of the university’s academic community and operates in close conjunction with the university. Its mission is to be of service to the university, to promote its interests, and to perpetuate good fellowship among students, former students, graduates, friends, faculty, and staff. The Association is governed by a volunteer board of directors and relies primarily on memberships and donations from alumni and friends to exist. The Alumni Association continually strives to meet the needs of our greater UI&U family. Please let us know how we may serve you by sending an email to the Director of Alumni Affairs at alumni@myunion.edu.
