Overview

Union University -- Renewing Minds

Founded in 1823, Union University is a private, Christian, 4-year, liberal-arts based university in Jackson, Tennessee. Union is committed to integrating top-tier academics and Christian faith in all 100 programs of study.

Since 1997, "U.S. News and World Report" has ranked Union one of the best universities in the South (13th among regional universities this year). For the 6th straight year, Union ranked as one of only 61 Up and- Coming Schools in the nation that have recently made the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty members, student life, campus, or facilities. Union is also an A-Plus School for B Students.

"Kiplinger's Personal Finance" has included Union University on its list of the country's best values in private colleges.

They compete in men's and women's varsity sports and a wide range of intramural sports. Union is in year 3, or the provisional year, of NCAA Division II membership.
