In the Fall of 2003, students, faculty, and staff at Union University began a campus wide service day called “Day of Remembrance.”  This service day is our way of thanking the community for the help they gave our university during the tornado relief efforts of 2002 and 2003, and provide encouragement to the tremendous ongoing work of our local schools, churches and non-profit organizations.


Wednesday, November 7, 2007, marks Union University’s fifth annual Day of Remembrance campus wide service day.  This is a time when faculty, staff and students join together giving thanks to God for His Protection of our campus during the 2002 and 2003  Jackson tornados. 


The day begins at 8:30 am in the chapel for a special corporate worship service.  The service will conclude at 9:00 am so service teams can re-group in the assigned locations for final instructions before leaving to serve. 


If you are interested in participating in a project, please sign up in Campus Ministries before Tuesday, November 6th.  It is important to sign up ahead of time, as most projects have limited space to ensure meaningful work for all participants.  Project time slots are open on a first-come, first-served basis.


Please click on the “Projects Link” to find out more information about the projects that are available.


Classes will be cancelled in order for students, faculty, and staff to serve together.  However, the following labs and classes will meet: 

EGR lab, CHE 111L, BIO 112L, PHY 111L, ART 221 

Please check with your professor if you are currently in a lab to see if your class will be held on this day.

In addition, student teaching, graduate and evening classes will be held

on November 7th.
