Professor Emeritus Dr. Robert Glenn Falls, namesake of Anderson University's Falls School of Business, passed away on Nov. 10, 2017, after a short illness.
ANDERSON – To those who knew him at Anderson University and across Madison County, he was a teacher, mentor, community partner and friend.
But more than that, to many he encountered throughout his 95 years, Robert Glenn Falls was an inspiration.
Anderson University’s Falls School of Business and School of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences welcomed both new and familiar faces to their faculty this fall. Professors Stefanie Leiter and Vanessa Tijerina both served at AU in previous capacities before joining the faculty. Dr. Janell Blunt is a new face on AU’s campus.
Students find value in experience at internships
An internship is a necessity in the pursuit of a job in today’s workforce. Whether one has a degree in athletic training, business, or history, many employers deem education incomplete without tangible, real-world experience. Anderson University students like Kayla Brandt and Michael Weigel are taking advantage of these opportunities.
We hope you will join us on the Anderson University campus Oct. 13-14 for our Homecoming 2017 celebration! As we conclude our Centennial year, the weekend will be filled with our traditional Homecoming events, as well as a few specific Centennial activities. Family Weekend will also take place during this special time on campus!

AU maintains a historical relationship with the City of Anderson
Anderson University has long been a partner with the City of Anderson in a variety of ways over the last 100 years. The partnership has proved to be valuable for both parties, since the university works to promote the city to its students, and the city works to promote the university to its citizens.
