The Division of Student Affairs is excited to announce a unified department name for the University Union, Gateway Center, Coliseum, and Student Affairs at Discovery Park.

University Centers and Events (UCE) encompasses the University Union, Gateway Center and Coliseum. UCE provides quality programs, services, and facilities that enhance the educational experience and create a community for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests. We assist students to become citizens of a global community, prepared to function successfully in a diverse world.

“We are excited about having a department name that aligns with the services we provide to the university and community,” said Wendy Denman, Executive Director of the University Union. “We also believe having a unified name will provide more clarity to those we serve in knowing that we are one department.”

These areas have been functioning as one department with a shared mission, purpose, standards, and values, but have been referred to by the building names. While building names will not change, the new unified department name is University Centers & Events (UCE).

“The name is very fitting, as all of our areas put on and manage events and serve as central locations that are multifunctional,” said Denman.
