We are stronger together

Anderson University is continuing its 2020-2021 academic year on campus with a singular focus on protecting the health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and our greater community. 

In-person classes for the spring semester begin on Tuesday, January 19.

(Check out the 2020-2021 revised academic calendar.) 

The Journey Ahead represents the way we can love and care for ourselves and others by practicing personal responsibility and demonstrating servant leadership.

President and Professor of Management

Anderson University truly is a family. And, as a family, we must work together while navigating the new reality forced upon us. We will get through this by being stronger together, trusting in God, and working as a community of faith and friendship.
