A 2009 international rescue and relief graduate, Jonathan Hoewing found the degree and experiences he gained at Union College open doors around the world as he's worked in Haiti, Saudi Arabia and now Papua New Guinea.
Five years ago, the $14.5 million to build Union's new math and science center was a daunting goal. Thanks to a $500,000 challenge by alumnus Steve Gifford in honor of his wife, Beverly, that goal may be met by the end of December.
Each year, Union College students and employees take a day off of classes to give back to Lincoln, assisting non-profits who help others all year. It's more than just one day, it's a way for students to find long-term volunteer projects and continue Union's culture of service.
