Virginia Union University

Virginia Union University was founded in 1865 to give newly emancipated slaves an opportunity for education and advancement. The University is the result of the merger of four institutions: Richmond Theological Seminary, Wayland Seminary, Hartshorn Memorial College, and Storer College.

Virginia Union University is nourished by its African American heritage and energized by a commitment to excellence and diversity. Its mission is to:

  1. Provide a nurturing intellectually challenging and spiritually enriching environment for learning;
  2. Empower students to develop strong moral values for success; and
  3. Develop scholars, leaders, and lifelong learners of a global society.

To accomplish this mission, Virginia Union University offers a broad range of educational opportunities that advance liberal arts education, teaching, research, science, technology, continuing education, civic engagement, and international experiences.
