Ellen Daniels, Director of Adult Studies
As an Anderson University alumnus, I well recognize the value of my educational experience. Yes, I earned a degree, but my life was changed in the process as I encountered faculty and staff who invested in me. Anderson University is a family affair. Not only did I graduate from A.U., but my husband and two sons did as well. All three of them also went on to earn A.U. graduate degrees. We are true Raven fans.
I relish the opportunity to help adult students achieve the dream of graduating with a college degree. No matter if you are just beginning your journey, or you started 50 years ago, we are here to help you finish! It is our goal to assist as you figure out your next steps in life.
Ellen has served at Anderson University since 2008.
