Union Institute & University Celebrates Employees

UI&U is thankful for the many dedicated employees that make Union a special place to work. The contributions of employees celebrating milestone anniversaries were recognized on April 20.

President Sublett expressed his thanks to staff with the following tribute.

“I express appreciation to each of our colleagues celebrating this year, and am happy Union can recognize their contributions to the university today.

Each of the people we recognized has an amazing story of commitment and service to our students and to their fellow employees. It is inspiring for me to serve with you each day. Honestly, I really enjoying walking into this beautiful building each morning, and into our centers in Florida, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Brattleboro on my visits, and celebrate the accomplishments of all who have served before us.

You have heard me say, ‘We all drink from wells we did not dig and warm ourselves by fires we did not build. Each of you has picked up the mantle of service of those who served before us, and you do a GREAT job each day!”
