Reardon Auditorium / Conference & Performance Events

Conference & Performance Events (CPE)

CPE Office

The Office of Conference and Performance Events at Anderson University is concerned with providing the best for every client who chooses to use the AU grounds and facilities for their event. From football and band camps in the summer, to youth and adult conferences, from large stage and theatrical production to local band performances, the staff of CPE is committed to serving our constituents with the best AU has to offer.

Use of facilities on the AU campus include Reardon Auditorium, Byrum Hall, the two large recital halls in our Fine Arts buildings, classrooms, dormitories (for housing), Olt Student Center (with dining hall and Raven’s Haven), access to our athletic fields and tennis courts, and use of the Kardatzke Wellness Center.

At Anderson University, visitors will find an expansive, well-groomed campus, beautiful architecture, a warm and friendly atmosphere and just the right mixture of available facilities to host any event.


The staff of the Office of Conference and Performance Events commits to serving those visiting our campus to the highest level of our ability. We will strive to maintain an attitude of servanthood in keeping with the mission of Anderson University.

Our intent is to provide services in a manner that will ultimately witness to our conferees and patrons our belief in the Lord, and through our serving, His name will be glorified. Our hope is that all that visit Anderson University will have accomplished their goals and, upon their leaving, will have attained a renewed spirit.

In providing performance events, our purpose is to create for the University and the community at large those programs that will enhance the academic, cultural, and spiritual aspects of life.

As we strive toward these goals, in working with our associates on campus, we do so with a sense of cooperation and camaraderie, being cognizant of each department’s needs and their own goals and philosophies, and generating a sense of mutual respect for the good of each of our programs.

This philosophy is created with the full intent of upholding the goals and commitments stated. May we not fall short.
