What Our Students Are Saying

Erin Price, Ed.D. "Having faculty who were invested in my success, both as a student and a professional in Christian higher education, was something I needed more than I understood at the time. Now that I have graduated and worked in both secular and Christian higher ed, I understand the importance of a program like the one at Union. I am exceedingly grateful for the education and experience that Union provided to me, and I couldn't be more enthusiastic about recommending it to others.
