“Virginia Union University has been a fixture in this community for 153 years. We are committed to expanding our footprint by reaching beyond our campus and providing greater access and resources to all of our neighbors,” said Dr. Hakim J. Lucas, President, Virginia Union University.
“This partnership is significant because it allows us to grow. We are already providing healthcare options for adults and children in our area with limited access to medical services, while also offering opportunities for a college education to students who are academically inclined but, worried about the financial implications.”
