A commitment strong as ever, we are #StillAU

On Wednesday, March 18, Anderson University was faced with one of the most difficult decisions in the history of the institution. As an act of civic responsibility, the university decided to suspend all in-person classes for the rest of the semester. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. The call for social distancing has spurred creative ways for Ravens to stay connected virtually, to each other and to prospective students and families, as community is a strong value and foundation of the AU family.

When students come to AU, they experience things that may not be felt anywhere else in the world. Students mention individualized attention through AU’s small class sizes, the development of lifelong friendships, the dedication of faculty, spiritual growth, and much more. These qualities are part of what makes us unique — what makes us who we are — and we are not willing to compromise on them.  

Although our world is changing, our commitment to the AU community is just as strong as ever. This commitment is not bound by geographical location. If anything, we are simply learning to develop these strong relational bonds in a different way. Our commitment is one thing that you can expect to never change. We are still Ravens. We are #StillAU.
