Steering committee and project team who have been involved in the selection and development of this new curriculum management system include faculty and staff from the University Senate, Undergraduate Education, Graduate School and college administration.

Anderson University’s Acalog implementation is a wrap. Kudos to our team and the team at Anderson University!
