Bill Anderson Fund at UD dedicated to professional diversity

A nonprofit established in the memory of pioneering disaster-studies researcher William A. Anderson and dedicated to his goal of improving diversity in the field announced last year that it would make the University of Delaware its home.

Now, during the recent Bill Anderson Fund (BAF) fall workshop at UD for graduate students in disaster studies, the designation of the University as the fund’s flagship institution has become official. UD and BAF representatives signed documents on Oct. 19 formalizing the connection.
