Program Mission

The mission of Union's Athletic Training Education Program is to challenge its students to become highly effective allied health care professionals and leaders in the Christian community, incorporating both professional and spiritual growth in their life plans. Union incorporates into the foundation of education the equally important components of being excellence driven, Christ-centered, people focused, and future directed. The Union University athletic training student will study in a Christ centered atmosphere that challenges students to develop spiritually and intellectually so they can serve professionally in their community and become spiritual leaders in the church. Union University's athletic training students are exposed to a dynamic scholastic environment that fuses the sciences of allied health care with Christian faith, ethics and accountability. The athletic training student will be offered a variety of opportunities to practice in the classroom and in clinical settings including intercollegiate athletics, high school athletics, orthopedic and general medicine venues, and other allied health care communities.
