Office of the Dean of Students

Bryan Carrier

Dear Union Family:

I am so glad that you have chosen to be part of the Union community! I count it a privilege to serve as the Dean of Students. In this role I strive to create an engaging and intentional educational atmosphere where you will have the opportunity to encounter God, experience community and engage culture. Please know that I have an open door policy, and enjoy meeting with students about personal goals, personal or institutional challenges that need solutions, or brainstorming about ideas that can better serve the university and our community.

My goals for you are threefold: First and foremost, that you would continue to develop an authentic, life altering, relationship with Jesus Christ. My second desire is that you would thrive academically, getting excited about your courses, and about how God is preparing you for service to His Kingdom. My final goal for you is to be an active partner in creating a Bonheoffer-type community in this place, where we do "life together" very well. Each of these goals requires us to be genuine, to have fortitude and to give sacrificially of ourselves.

The aim of my office is to create a seamless learning environment in which both curricular and co-curricular learning prepares Union students to become Excellence Driven, Christ Centered, People Focused and Future Directed. To this end, please know that I am eager to provide you with helpful opportunities and resources, accurate information, and innovative solutions. If I can be of service to you please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail (bcarrier@uu.edu), or set up an appointment by calling 731.661.5090.
