The story of the Fair family’s connection to Anderson University begins in Turkey with an early-twentieth-century tragedy – the Armenian Genocide.
Beginning in 1915, the Ottoman Empire systematically murdered around 1.5 million Armenians. Able-bodied men were forced into labor, while women and the disabled were forced into death marches. Those who were able to survive the genocide sought refuge elsewhere.
Beginning in Fall 2017, Anderson University will introduce new programs, as well as significant updates to existing programs. The new programs include majors in engineering physics, worship arts, and a B.S. in computer science and minors in social work and sport and recreational leadership.
The new programs are being offered following a review of internal programs and capacity, as well as a scan of the marketplace and job opportunities for students.
