Union College to break ground for new science and math complex

Union College will strengthen its commitment to provide excellent science, mathematics and health science education in the Lincoln community by breaking ground for a new 55,000 sq. ft. science and mathematics complex on April 6.

Students organize Tiny Hands, Big Hearts sale

Art is a commodity. Young girls are not. Union College's Peace and Social Justice Club, in conjunction with Union's chapter of Amnesty International, invites the Lincoln community to help put an end to slavery by buying art on Sunday, Dec. 6 from 1-3 p.m. Held in the lobby of Engel Hall on the Union College campus, the Tiny Hands, Big Hearts sale will benefit Tiny Hands International, a Lincoln-based organization dedicated to stopping human trafficking.

The students were inspired to support Tiny Hands after representatives spoke about the organization's mission to help enslaved girls during a chapel service at the college. Amanda Clark, president of the Peace and Social Justice club, said seeing photos of just a few of the thousands of little girls sold to brothels each year made the cause personal.

“I thought of my new nieces. I thought of my little sister,” said Clark, a senior graphic design major. “I started to think of all of the young women I know and about them being forced into something like that.” She knew she had to do something. Unsure what sort of impact a single college student could make, inspiration struck during a conversation with a friend and fellow artist.
