Since joining Anderson in July 2020, I have enjoyed learning about our rich history and our students’ accomplishment, as well as meeting many of our alumni and partners in the community. I am energized by the commitment of our faculty and staff and the incredible potential I see in our students. I believe Anderson has a very bright future and I am very honored to be a part of the Lobo family.

As we manage through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hard at work finding creative ways to provide our students with the excellent programs they expect while keeping the Pack safe. I’m grateful to everyone for doing their part to help keep each other safe. If you would like to get involved with Anderson, here are ways you can engage and support our mission.
