Graduating from college is one of life’s significant milestones. On May 5, 41 adults celebrated this achievement with their families, the president, faculty, administrators, and staff from Union Institute & University.

“We couldn’t be more proud of our graduates. Earning a degree is life changing, and we know that Union graduates are world changers,” said Dr. Jay Keehn, executive director at Union’s Florida Academic Center in Hollywood. “What makes Union unique is we know each student. We understand the struggle of working full-time, raising a family, and completing a college degree. Now they will go out and impact not only their lives and their families, but also make a difference in their communities.”

Uplifting Words from Dr. Webb

Dr. Karen Schuster Webb, president of Union Institute & University, welcomed the graduates and elevated them with these words: “To all our students: We trust that your Union education has – in the words of our mission – engaged, enlightened, and empowered you to become change agents and leaders. We look to each of you – in your own ways – to continue to make a difference in your own communities and to carry the Union legacy forward.”

Union Institute and University graduatesDr. Webb acknowledged the sacrifice of the students, and also the families – the mothers, fathers, grandparents, sons, and daughters who supported each student along the journey. She congratulated the students on earning their degrees by borrowing time from family and friends, by balancing their time and energy between jobs and community commitments, and through sheer discipline and hard work.
