Pacific Lutheran Says Goodbye to President Loren Anderson


After Bruce Bjerke '72, chair of the Board of Regents at Pacific Lutheran University, praised the Andersons for their long service to the university - noting that during President Anderson's tenure PLU has seen the creation of five endowed chairs and professorships, a healthy endowment of $75 million and the recent completion of a capital campaign that topped $120 million - he had a surprise in store. Bjerke turned to assistant professor Spencer Ebbinga, who unveiled a bronze bust of Anderson. The bust will have a new home in the newly renamed Loren and MaryAnn Anderson University Center.

Boyer Award photoWestminster College will host the 18th Annual New American Colleges and Universities (NAC&U) Summer Institute from June 20-22, 2012. The Summer Institute brings together faculty and administrators from member colleges and universities across the nation to discuss issues facing their schools and also provides a venue for professional development and networking.

This year's NAC&U Summer Institute builds on the theme explored through the NAC&U Teagle Foundation Planning Grant. Through the grant project, teams are exploring what it means to be a NAC&U professor in the 21st century. In this year's Summer Institute, participants will delve into what it means to be a 21st century NAC&U institution.
