Andrea White and Pamela Cooper-White Bring Crucial Perspectives to Union
The faculty has recommended, the president has appointed, and the board has approved two new professors who will join the Union community in the coming academic year. Each of these women is at the very top of their respective field, and their decision to come here speaks volumes about the incredible work we do at Union and our reputation for engaged and insightful students. We look forward to welcoming them to Union.
