It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Minority Student Resources website. Our former President, Dr. Dockery stated on several occasions that Union's ongoing commitment to the Great Commandment compels us to recognize that a love for God requires a love for all humanity. It is in that vein that Union University seeks to create a climate that fosters the development of intercultural competencies in faculty, staff, and students. Our ultimate aim is to make this campus more closely resemble the reality presented to us in Revelation 7:9, when those from every nation, tribe, people and language shall be joined together in worship and service to our God. The very existence of this website is evidence of God's grace as we seek to be faithful to these goals.
I am pleased to be a primary contact for ethnic minority students. I look forward to working to provide not only academic and spiritual support, but also social, emotional, cultural and professional development. As my title implies, my primary objective is to ensure that every student I serve is provided the resources necessary to be successful in every sphere of life.
This website has been designed to assist Union University's minority students in a variety of ways. So, please take a moment to explore the webpage and acquaint yourself with the many resources available to you. If we have not had an opportunity to meet please stop by my office, in the Office of University Ministries, and say, "Hello."
