Union Institute & University Launches New Web Site

www.myunion.edu designed to change your thinking about higher education; reflects recent changes at UI&U.

Cincinnati, OH, February 05, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Union Institute & University (UI&U), today launched its newly designed Web site, www.myunion.edu. Under the banner, “Change Your Thinking,” the innovative new Web site showcases the university’s wide array of undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degree offerings, and provides access to other university services, including financial aid, courses for visiting learners and non-credit lifelong learning courses.

Union President Dr. Roger Sublett said the new Web site is timely, considering the competitive market and the university’s recent launch of three innovative doctoral programs, the expansion of UI&U's undergraduate majors, and the success of UI&U’s Master of Arts Online program - administered in Montpelier, one of the university’s most popular degree programs. “In these difficult economic times, working adults are looking for ways to integrate their lives with their learning, as well as make themselves more attractive to their current or prospective employer,” said Dr. Sublett. “Our new Web site will help drive our mission and vision.”

Cincinnati-based advertising agency, the Creative Department, designed a site that provides simple and intuitive navigation for prospective learners to quickly find the program that best fits their location, their schedule, and their learning style. Steve Deiters, partner and creative director at the Creative Department, said most adults have preconceived notions of how college is supposed to work, “We found a creative way to communicate how Union Institute & University very uniquely challenges the conventional learning process. It's time to change your thinking – about your own education,” he said.
