College unveils new name, logo

        An innovative, global adult college based in Walnut Hills changed its name, logo and motto last week.

        The renamed Union Institute & University retains Union Institute for the emotional attachment, President Judith A. Sturnick said.

        Adding “& University” acknowledges this year's purchase of Vermont College in Montpelier and its “very fine master's programs.”

        Combined with Union Institute's bachelor's and Ph.D. programs, she said, those master's degrees promise a “seamless” accredited education to adults who can't afford to leave homes and jobs for years.

        The green-and-gold logo symbolizes the two merged institutions, the flame of learning and the flower of new growth, she said. The motto is “Personal. Progressive. Powerful.”

        At the school, students design their own programs, find their academic oversight committees and set their own goals, subject to the school's approval.

        In turn, those mentors stay in close touch, keeping the personal foremost, Dr. Sturnick stressed.

        The Union Institute was founded in Cincinnati in 1964. It has no campus as such, using two historic buildings on East McMillan Street largely for administration.

        Vermont College was founded in the mid-19th century and it has no on-campus learners.
