Gerald and Arlene Anderson established the Anderson Faculty Enrichment Fund to support Davis College faculty development activities that will enhance undergraduate teaching.
The fund was created with the underlying belief that the most important function of the University is the transfer of knowledge, and the effectiveness of this transfer in preparing students for productive and meaningful lives is dependent upon a competent, responsive faculty.
Awards from the Anderson Faculty Enrichment Fund are intended to support faculty in activities that enhance undergraduate teaching.
The Anderson Fund was established through the WVU Foundation, the private non-profit corporation that generates, receives and administers private gifts for the benefit of WVU .
