What year did you start teaching at AU


Why teach at AU?

I love teaching at Anderson University because it is an incredible, faith-based institution that truly understands the necessity of placing Christ in all that we do. I believe Anderson University truly appreciates and cares for its students and faculty, and that is a rare quality these days. I love the supportive atmosphere. It is those great relationships fostered with the leadership as well as with the students that continue to drive my passion for teaching here.

How would you describe your classes to someone who has never attended one?

While the curriculum can be challenging, I generally foster a very supportive classroom environment. You will have fun, you will have healthy debate, and you will leave with kernels of wisdom that help you to be better prepared to take on the world.

Fred can’t say enough about the leadership at Anderson University and its criminal justice program. “I truly believe that Anderson University is second to none!”
He wishes for students to understand a career in criminal justice or emergency management includes “long days, hard work and the thank yous are few and far between. Yet, there is nothing more rewarding than going home knowing that you have saved a life or helped someone who truly needed you. No other career can compare to the level of self satisfaction that you will receive.”
