Union College’s relationship with the Bennett Center, an umbrella organization for non-profit groups, began with the closure of Sue Bennett College in 1997. Union College at the Bennett Center was established to provide a degree completion program (DCP) primarily for London area residents. In 2008, Union College at the Bennett Center was renamed Union College London Center and the site expanded its offerings to include a two-year bachelor’s degree program as well as a master’s degree program. (from Union College webpage)
