Interesting to note that the new VP was introduced on the occasion of the “3rd

Annual” Diversity Symposium in 2003.

one panelist remarked that Anderson, “hasn’t even been here (A&M) for 48 hours and has already been

accused of many things.” In reply to which, Anderson was reported to have “laughed in agreement.”
