Q: What brought you to AU? How many years have you been at AU?
A: I came to Anderson University while working for the Church of God Camp Meeting campground registration. During that week, I worked closely with some of the Reardon staff members. After observing me and my work, they asked if I would be willing to work with them for some summer events. I have worked for the university for almost 17 years.
Q: What brought you to Anderson University? How many years have you been at AU?
A: I've been at AU for 36 years. I am an alumnus of both the undergraduate college and seminary. A literal translation of the Latin phrase alma mater is “fostering mother,” and that captures my undergrad experience here. My professors took me more seriously than I took myself, and I wanted to return to repay some of the debt I owe my alma mater.
Q: How long have you been teaching at Anderson University?
A: Fifteen years. Before I was the dean, I taught the assessment class for the classroom, social studies, children’s literature language, educational psychology, and classroom management. I have also done the seminar for student teachers. In addition to teaching, I am the co-director for the year-long student teachers and the honors programs.Retiring Faculty Q & A: Dr. Jan Fulkerson
