Winter 2013-14 Michigan Tech Magazine

  • Alumni Association Notes

    Q&A with Chris S. Anderson '72 Recently retired as the President's special assistant for institutional diversity

    Describe your work and its challenges. My work was about improving preparation, access, and academic success for young people, especially underrepresented minorities and, in many cases, women. The challenge is that it takes a long time to address these issues and affect change, so the commitment must be comprehensive and long term.

Inside cover: Heavy spring rainfall sent water coursing over Hungarian Falls, a few miles northeast of campus near Hubbell.

Correction: The Pep Band drummer on page 16 of the fall Michigan Tech Magazine was not properly identified. He is graduate student Jeremy Loucks.
