Anderson University encourages students to share their time, service and hearts with the community, not only for their benefit but also for the benefit of the community. Three student groups in particular logged a significant number of service hours during the fall semester 2015. AU’s Juvenile Justice, Prayer Ministries and The Christian Center groups spent more than 1,600 hours serving the campus and community.
Anderson University will welcome Bob Goff, author of the New York Times Best-Selling book Love Does and founder of Restore International, a nonprofit human rights organization operating in Uganda, India and Somalia. Goff will be a featured speaker, March 28 at 7 p.m. and March 29 at 11 a.m. Both sessions will be conducted in Reardon Auditorium and are open to the public.
“Personal branding” is a popular idea today. It is also a necessary skill for Anderson University students graduating from almost every discipline — from music business to Christian ministries. Personal branding allows individuals to intentionally share who they are. In fact, the idea of personal branding is so important to young people entering the workforce today that the Falls School of Business has hired a professor with just that subject in mind.
Through a partnership between St.Vincent Home Health and Hospice and Anderson University’s Orangehaus Records, a special CD titled Gone from My Sight will be previewed and released Sunday, March 6, at 3 p.m. in York Performance Hall. The preview will honor hospice patients as well as hospice nurses. Included in the program will be pre-recorded video reflections, stories about hospice care, and a slide show describing the making of the CD.

This morning, Anderson University received a nonspecific bomb threat via email. The message was sent to multiple offices on campus. After searching all primary buildings on the campus, law enforcement agencies have given AU the “all-clear.”
Many students are able to serve different cultures through Tri-S trips during their time at Anderson University, but the international missions experience continues after graduation for some alumni. Both Dan and Christy Kihm, 2003 graduates, and Joshua and Audrey Weiger, who graduated in 2007 and 2006 respectively, are currently serving in Europe with Three Worlds, a Church of God ministry. For both couples, their time at AU helped develop and grow their passion for global ministry.
Dr. Janet Brewer, Nicholson Library’s director, hopes the community will see the significance of this exhibit in correlation to the election in November.
