Oglesby Union Values

The Oglesby Union is a diverse and engaging community that fosters individual and collective learning by providing outstanding services and opportunities for involvement.

Values

Excellence

We are a center for community that provides the highest caliber services and activities for our guests.

Respect

We provide a culturally diverse environment that creates opportunity for discovery and encourages dignity in the learning process.

Learning

We are a learning environment where student development and leadership opportunities as well as entertainment and cultural enrichment abound.

Vision

We encourage the curious to be creative, and promote citizenship as interactions occur in program development and self-governance.

Openness

We are a laboratory providing students with the opportunity to partner with each other as well as staff and faculty to foster trust, teamwork, and group involvement.

Purpose

The union is the community center of the university, serving students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests. By whatever form or name, a college union is an organization offering a variety of programs, activities, services and facilities that, when taken together, represent a well-considered plan for the community life of the university.

The union serves as a unifying force that honors each individual and values diversity. The union fosters a sense of community that cultivates enduring loyalty to the university.

Traditionally considered the “hearthstone” or “living room” of the campus, today’s union is the gathering place of the university. The union provides services and conveniences that members of the college community need in their daily lives and creates an environment for getting to know and understand others through formal and informal associations.
