Linda Clark has worked as a staff member in different departments at Anderson University since 1970, from the admission office to the Center for Innovation and Digital Learning
How did you come to serve at Anderson University?
I started working at Anderson University in October, 1970, when my husband, James, joined the faculty of the music department and remained for 41 years.
What is your current position at Anderson University?
From 1970 until 1972, I worked in admission and the Registrar’s office. I worked as the admission administrative assistant and later worked as transcript clerk, when transcripts were typed on a typewriter and GPA was figured on a calculator. I left when my first child was born. In 1973, I worked in the printing and mailing office. I left when my child did not adapt to childcare, when both of my parents died and I began raising my 12-year old brother, who went on to become a graduate of Anderson University. From 1977 through 2013, I served as the administrative assistant for the academic deans and the provost’s office. From 2014 through the present, I work for the Center for Innovation and Digital Learning.
Why did you choose to work at Anderson University instead of another institution?
When we moved to Anderson University, the faculty and staff became our second family. We have been blessed to be a part of such a great place of employment for many years. It’s a great place to work: Christian atmosphere, wonderful administrators, faculty, staff and students.
What’s the most memorable thing that happened to you at Anderson University?
Being witness to University status and seeing the addition of graduate/doctoral programs. I believe the roles in which I have served and am still serving give me a more complete picture of how the various areas of the University work together. There is great camaraderie among faculty, staff and students. My husband and I have been blessed to be a part of the University.
