Union University


Counseling Services

Union University is committed to the development of the whole person, who under the sovereignty of God is a person of intellectual, spiritual, social, psychological, and physical dimensions. Union endeavors to approach students from these perspectives and to provide the atmosphere, opportunities, and resources for students to know wholeness within the context of a community of learners.

In support of this mission, Union University Counseling Services is staffed by a psychologist to assist students with personal counseling. In addition to on-campus services, limited off-campus services are available through community service providers by referral of the Director of Counseling Services.
