Generally, when someone thinks of advancement in relation to a college, the first thing they think about is money.  While no college can survive without the gifts of alumni, friends, parents, and foundations, at Union advancement is much more than just fundraising.  Relationships are what ultimately provide the basis for a college's success, and relationship building is at the core of Office of Advancement's mission statement.

The Office of Advancement is comprised of Alumni Relations and Development.

Although they each have unique functions, each area interrelates and is dependent on the others for success.  Take a few moments and get to know the Advancement area.  If you have any questions, please contact us at, or call us at 606-546-1659.  We look forward to hearing from you.
