Role of the College Union

Adopted by the Association's general membership in 1996, the following statement is based on the Role of the College Union statement, 1956 Association of College Unions International.

The Union is the community center of the college, serving students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests. By whatever form or name, a college union is an organization offering a variety of programs, activities, services, and facilities that, when taken together, represent a well-considered plan for the community life of the college.

The Union is an integral part of the educational mission of the college.

The Union's goal is the development of persons as well as intellects.

Traditionally considered the "hearthstone" or "living room" of the campus, today's union is the gathering place of the college. The Union provides services and conveniences that members of the college community need in their daily lives and creates an environment for getting to know and understand others through formal and informal associations.

The Union serves as a unifying force that honors each individual and values diversity. The Union fosters a sense of community that cultivates enduring loyalty to the college.
