Why Union?

Union College has a rich history of 100 years of serving the Seventh-day Adventist Church. As part of that history, the teacher preparation program has prepared teachers to serve all over the world and is one of the oldest educational programs in the denomination. The teacher preparation program received Nebraska state accreditation in 1941 and was the first Seventh-day Adventist college to be accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) in 1963.

The Union College teacher preparation program is recognized for its excellent training of teachers to serve in a variety of educational settings. Union College students are some of the most sought after teachers in the Seventh-day Adventist denomination.

You will be on the leading edge with regards to teaching in content areas or able teach in a one-room school with your multi-grade lab school experience.  Our goal is to prepare caring, competent, committed professional educators who will succeed in a variety of school settings.
