Distinctive. Compelling. Relevant. When President John Pistole stepped onto campus as head of Anderson University in 2015, those three values were his compass for what he would strive for the university to be.
“In everything we do, how can we be a distinctive, compelling, and relevant institution?” In his first three years with AU, Pistole and his staff have found a multitude of answers.
Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University is proud to prepare students for a life of faith and service in the church and society. What comes after graduation will vary for each individual. For some, it means going on to do graduate study, and AU has seen its students continue their education in a wide variety of fields, including:
Anderson, Ind. — Over the past two years, students in the computer science program at Anderson University have been partnering with the modern foreign language program to develop an app that aids in studying Spanish phonetics. It is a custom tool that contains specific vocabulary and content for the SPAN 3140 course at AU. The research for the app has been presented at two Scholars Day events and at the 2018 CIS Case Competition at Ball State University.
Anderson, Ind. — A program produced by Anderson University communication students has been named a finalist in a national sports-media contest sponsored by the Sports Video Group. “Raven Watch,” a product of the AU student newspaper, is contending for recognition as Outstanding Program Series, student-produced media division, of the SVG College Sports Media Awards contest.
Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University students seek to fulfill the university’s core values each day, and many students fulfill the value of excellence as they earn awards and other commendations for their scholarly work and efforts, both in and out of the classroom.
The following students were recognized during the 2017-2018 school year, and the university congratulates them on their hard work:
