Welcome from the Dean

Dean I hope you enjoy this newsletter relaying many of the highlights of the School's academic year 2014/2015. These accomplishments were due to the hard work of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other supporters. It has been a pleasure to serve as Interim Dean working with this talented group of individuals.

A broad focus of the year was setting a course for the future with a revision and update of the School's strategic plan. The updated plan provides the following goals: 1) Becoming the Regional Business School of Choice, 2) Preparing Lobos for Life-long Success, 3) Advancing Discovery and Innovation, 4) Advancing and Accelerating both Economic and Community Development, and 5) Improving the Anderson School's Infrastructure. Over the next year, we will be designing and implementing the activities necessary for us to achieve these goals.

Construction is underway for the 65,000 square foot McKinnon Center for Management (MCM). The MCM will provide an engaging, state-of-the-art learning environment that is scheduled to be completed and ready for the Fall 2018 semester.

As we look to the future, the accomplishments of Anderson Alumni, supporters, and faculty are a great source of inspiration. Each year the School provides recognition at the Hall of Fame event. This year the theme of the event was "Imagine the Possibilities." The honorees exemplify what is possible with education, hard work, and persistence. We are truly proud of what they have accomplished and look forward to seeing what other amazing things the Anderson community will achieve.

If you are ever on campus, please drop by and say hello. You can also keep up with the Anderson School through Facebook and Twitter.
