A Message From Dean Brown


In academia, a “capstone” course provides an opportunity to review and synthesize learnings in that field. Being Dean at Anderson has been the capstone course to my career.  It brought to bear my previous experience in the local and national business community, experience in State Government, service in many non-profit enterprises, and volunteer service at UNM and other institutions.  Equally important as the experience has been the network of acquaintances that has accumulated.  It is remarkable how frequently simply knowing someone establishes a basis of trust and enables one to get things done.

No position has provided me more personal satisfaction and fulfillment.  The satisfaction comes from working with such a dedicated team of faculty and staff with unwavering support from our boards and members of the community.  The fulfillment comes from knowing we at Anderson are helping young lives grow and flourish.  Thank you all!

Publication Announcement

Professor Ryan Jacobson has recently had the following accepted for publication in Journal of Research on Adolescence:

Familism values, perspective taking, and prosocial moral reasoning: Predicting prosocial tendencies among Mexican American adolescents. (Knight, G. P., Carlo, G., Basilio, C. D., & Jacobson, R. P.)

The article uses a developmental perspective to investigate why Mexican Americans (adolescents and adults) tend to be more prosocial in number of ways than other ethnic groups. The authors found that familism values/practices (e.g., shared early childcaring) tend to encourage the development of perspective taking abilities--which in turn promote prosocial behavior.
Congratulations, Ryan!

Anderson and AIBA Pitch In For Fire Relief

The Anderson School of Management served as a drop-off site for donations for those affected by the Assayii Lake Fire on the Navajo Nation.

The American Indian Business Association student organization, led by Jaye Francis, coordinated the effort and transported several truckloads of food, clothing, and personal necessities to Naschitti Chapter House, one of the command centers near the fire.  Moving stories of homes and livestock lost to the fire spurred the students to further spread the word of items needed for victims and evacuees.

Many thanks to those who gave so generously, and to Jaye and AIBA for launching and organizing the donation initiative.
