Biographical / Historical

UNITAS is an advisory committee to the President of Union College. It promotes multiculturalism and diversity in the Union College community. The governing board consists of Board of Directors and two co-conveners, one of which must be a student, a secreatary and a treasurer.

UNITAS was established in 1997 by Professor of Biology Twitty Styles, his wife Dr. Constance Glasgow, Professor of Biology Carl George and his wife Gail. An intent of the organizing team was to create an enabling sum of money that would yield interest on an annual basis toward supporting diversity and community at Union College. A presidential advisory board was then appointed to promote funding applications from the faculty, staff and student body in support of its mission. It has co-sponsored events that relate to current issues with racism, sexism, LGBTQ+ shaming, and anything else detrimental towards the goals of UNITAS as an organization, namely diversity and community.
