Union University announces fall grads
Three hundred fifty-two students graduated from Union University Dec. 14 during the fall commencement service of the 189th graduating class at West Jackson Baptist Church.
Michael Duduit, dean of the College of Christian Studies at Anderson University and former executive vice president at Union, delivered the commencement address. Duduit said that graduating from Union is a dangerous act - not for the graduates, but for the culture in which they live.
"Your time at Union has equipped you to be the kind of influencer who reshapes culture, who can make a defense for the hope that is in you in every walk of life," Duduit said. "That makes you dangerous."
Located in Jackson, Tenn., Union University is a liberal arts-based university affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention. Founded in 1823, Union is the oldest institution affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
