Virginia Union University

    Established in 1865, Virginia
    Union University
    was formed to provide emancipated slaves with an opportunity for educational
    advancement. Four institutions merged in order to create VUU, now considered
    one of the nation’s Historical Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU). Now
    culturally diverse, as are most black colleges and African American universities,
    VUU seeks to provide an intellectually challenging and spiritually enriching
    environment for its students.
