Union College was founded in 1795 as the first college chartered by the Regents of the State of New York. The creation of Union was a bold experiment for its time. The founders wanted to establish a non-denominational institution, devoted to unity and community and dedicated to educating future citizens of the world.
From the start, Union blazed a trail of innovation. Early in its history, esc...hewing the heavily classical bias of most colleges of the day, Union introduced French and engineering classes and placed greater emphasis on history, science, modern languages and mathematics. Union was the first liberal arts college in the country to offer a degree in engineering, and today it is considered a national leader in the integration of the humanities and social sciences with science, technology and engineering. Union has graduated several heads of state, business, science, government, education and the arts, including U.S. President Chester Arthur, Secretary of State William Seward, 13 governors, 90 college presidents, an Olympic gold medalist, and winners of the Nobel Prize, Academy Award, and National Book Award.
Located on 100 acres in Schenectady, New York, Union sits at the heart of Upstate New York’s Capital Region-- close to the recreational opportunities of the Adirondacks and within an easy three-hour drive from Boston, New York City and Montreal. The distinctive campus – the first in the nation to be designed according to a master architectural plan—centers around the unique 16-sided Nott Memorial, a National Historic Landmark and superb example of Victorian architecture. The campus also features beautiful formal gardens.
The 20th century brought significant changes to Union. In 1970, the College adopted co-education. Today, roughly half of Union’s students are women. In 2004, Union introduced the Minerva Houses, a unique new approach to campus life that encourages social and intellectual interaction between students and faculty. Academically, the College continues to embrace innovative thought. Interdepartmental and cross-disciplinary studies thrive, as do newer programs in Asian studies, bioengineering, digital arts, film studies, nanotechnology, neuroscience and religious studies. Union’s newest building, the Peter Irving Wold Center for Science and Engineering, is an $18 million project that supports the school’s integrated approach to engineering and the liberal arts by providing state-of-the-art facilities for interdisciplinary learning.
