Career Newsletter Company Spotlight: Union Institute & University

May 14, 2012

The flexibility you need; the attention you deserve. This has been Union Institute & University’s (UI&U’s) approach to higher education for almost 50 years. A non-profit, accredited, private university spanning from Vermont to Ohio, to Florida, and California, UI&U serves motivated adults who seek transformative education and degrees that make a difference.

Offering undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees, as well as non-credit and certificate programs, Union provides options for completing coursework, including accelerated degree completion through low-residency programs that combine distance learning with web-based education, small on-ground classes, and totally online programs, all promoting creative and critical thinking, and connecting scholarship with real-world practice.

The fact that Union offers AmeriCorps alumni scholarships ($3,000 for undergrad and $2,000 for graduate) is rooted in Union’s mission to engage, enlighten, and empower students as they pursue a lifetime of learning and service. Recognized alumni include: Dr. Carter McNamara, nonprofit management author and consultant, Lisa Lorimer, entrepreneur and author on values driven businesses, Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, and Dr. Dorothy Fields Jenkins, historian and African American history expert, among thousands of others.

Need to finish your undergrad degree but planning to move around? UI&U offers the perfect solution through relevant education—on your schedule – in an uplifting online community. Staff includes a former AmeriCorps (Public Allies) site director and provides support uniquely suited to your AmeriCorps experience. We applaud your great service and will assist you as you achieve your educational goals.
