The Professional Development Center (PDC) at the Flagship is Anderson's premier site for academic and corporate development, catering to clients' conferencing needs with state-of-the-art technology, upscale dining packages, elegant facilities, and a commitment to excellence. Located in the heart of the Flagship complex, the PDC is ideal for academic seminars, ministry forums, business meetings, wedding receptions, and other social gatherings. Coupled with the thriving Flagship Enterprise Center and the newly constructed Anderson University Flagship Center, this dynamic location is a hub for entrepreneurial, professional development, and academic endeavors.
Located within the PDC is the Professional Development Services arm of the university.
Furnished with plush carpeting and rich mahogany trim, the 8,000-square-foot PDC adds class and comfort to any event. The auditorium comfortably seats 159 guests along spacious conference tables. Stadium seating and a circular design enhance communication and foster a greater sense of intimacy. Additionally, the conference center is equipped with light and sound production, data projection, video conferencing, wireless Internet, and an operational stage. A gathering space at the auditorium entrance offers flexible space to accommodate a variety of events, including dining functions, career fairs, small trade shows, and receptions. In addition to the main conference center and classrooms, guests will have access to a business center, complete with computer stations, Internet access, a printer, copier, and fax machine. Guests may also purchase deli-style food and beverages at Connections Cafe adjacent to the conference center.
The PDC is especially unique because of its prime location amidst the small-business operations of the Flagship Enterprise Center and the academic programming of the Anderson University Flagship Center. This dynamic environment houses corporate leaders, budding small businesses, college professors, and eager business graduate students from the Anderson University Falls School of Business.
