Dear Colleagues,
We are saddened by the recent death of Robert Anderson, a Continuing Lecturer in the University Writing Program.  Over the course of his career at UCR, he taught over two thousand undergraduates in small classes devoted to mastering the arts of academic literacy.   
Robert was known for his dedication to his students, for the effectiveness of his intensive approach to teaching, and for a sense of humor that cultivated students’ ability to see more depth in their studies and in their lives.   
Please keep Robert’s family, friends, students, and colleagues in your thoughts during this difficult time.
