Anderson at Work
The Largest Capital Gift
Ever Received
I
by the Anderson School of Management
t’s the largest capital gift ever received by the Anderson
School of Management. With a generous six figure
donation, Albuquerque real estate developer Steven P.
Jackson has named the Anderson Student Center after his late
father, Paul R. Jackson.

“I lost my father when I was very young” said Jackson. “He did a
lot for me and this is something I really wanted to do for him.”
Paul Jackson, who passed away in 1982, was a respected local
insurance businessman, former board member at Citizen’s Bank
and influential leader in Albuquerque who believed in giving
back to his community through education.
The newly named Paul R. Jackson Student Center is a
destination place allowing for informal interaction between
faculty and students and serving as a gathering place for study
groups, student clubs and organizations and information
distribution. It is also a popular venue for community events and
outreach including lectures, dinners, receptions, and recruitment activities.
“This expression of faith in our students and their future gives encouragement to all
of us,” said interim Anderson Dean Amy Wohlert. “We are very, very grateful to
Mr. Jackson for providing the right help, at the right time to make an immediate
difference in the success of Anderson’s mission.”
According to Wohlert the Jackson gift is among the largest gifts ever received
by the school, including six-figure gifts that support professorships,
scholarships and lectureships.
Dr. Alistair Preston, professor of Accounting at Anderson and a friend of
Steven Jackson since they went to school together in England some 30 years ago
said they always wanted to do something like this.
“This
expression of
faith in our
students and their
future gives
encouragement to
all of us”
“The timing finally came together on this idea which we had talked about for a long
time,” said Preston. “It really is an indication that the Anderson School is worth investing in. One of
the points of the gift is to stimulate the community to give back to the university.”
And it is working.

The Anderson School of Management Announces
2008 HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
ongratulations to the 2008 inductees into Anderson’s Hall of
Fame. A crowd of five hundred was on hand to welcome new
honorees Chief Justice (Ret.) Gene E. Franchini (BBA, 1957),
Ned A. Godshall (MBA, 1994), and Bradley J. Preber, (BBA, 1981).
“These candidates are selected for their professional success,
contribution to community and ongoing commitment to education,”
said Anderson Foundation Board Advancement Committee Chair,
Deborah Gorenz.
This was the 19th annual Hall of Fame, an event that allows Anderson
the opportunity to share with the rest of the business community those
individuals at the pinnacle of their careers. The event was co-emceed
by Anderson Foundation Board member Debbie Johnson (Rick
Johnson & Co.) and National Advisory Board member Ann Rhoades
(PeopleInk). University of New Mexico President Dr. David J.
Schmidly was the guest speaker and delivered a passionate address
about the ever increasing importance of a global business
environment.
Since 1990, 58 outstanding Anderson graduates have been recognized
for their professional accomplishments.
practicing attorneys outside of New Mexico.
Professor Dr. Jeanne Logsdon was the recipient of the 2008 Faculty
Community Leadership Award. All full-time faculty members are
eligible, with the exception of Deans, Sr. Associate, Associate and
Assistant Deans. Faculty must have demonstrated
leadership in enhancing the Anderson School
of Management’s visibility and relations
with the business community by creating
connections, providing leadership and
being actively involved in the business
community.
“Our faculty members create the
foundation for our students’ success, and
some achieve a very high standard for
community engagement, too,” said interim
Anderson Dean Amy Wohlert. “This award is
an important way to recognize those multitalented faculty leaders.” “This annual tradition allows us to celebrate the very best
the Anderson School of Management has to offer,” says
Anderson Foundation Board Chair John Brown.
“And it confirms what we already know, that Anderson
graduates are making a difference in and out of
New Mexico.”

Dear Friends,
Everyone in the Anderson community has been hard
at work, and this newsletter gives you only a small sample of the
accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. We work
hard because we are proud of our contributions: proud of our past, as reflected in
the legacy of Robert O. Anderson and in the careers of our Hall of Fame honorees;
proud of the present, as we gather in our new Paul R. Jackson Student Center to hear
faculty lectures and host community events; and proud of our future, glimpsed in the
earnest efforts of 1500 current Anderson students.
With so much to accomplish, we’ve organized our tasks in order to make good progress
toward our major goals. We attend to the basics with our first two goals, which are to increase
Anderson’s graduate enrollment so we can supply the business leaders needed for
tomorrow’s economy, and to maintain high accreditation standards that showcase the quality
of our programs. Anderson is among the elite 20% of business schools that have achieved rigorous
AACSB International standards. Our aim is not just to meet, but to reach the highest spirit of those
standards. Our new Assistant Deans, Dr. Michelle Arthur and Dr. Douglas Thomas, are leading the
way toward those goals.
The remaining three goals define areas of excellence at Anderson. We focus on success for all our students by creating a broad
range of tools to make degree completion possible and compelling. For example, our math boot camps – a quick math refresher just
before the start of every semester – are very popular, and our Native American Career Fair is now an annual event. Evening, online, and
televised courses, offsite courses in Rio Rancho, and executive and certificate programs give students convenient options. With over 50%
of our undergraduate students and over 30% of our graduate students from under-represented groups, and with graduation rates of over
85%, we know we are moving in a very positive direction.
Support for emerging business is our primary economic development goal. Our support is immediate, in terms of providing
assistance for new businesses, and long range, in terms of educating the workforce needed for New Mexico’s future. Thanks to
partnerships across UNM and with Sandia and Los Alamos national labs, we have been especially productive in assisting new
technology-based businesses, and our Technology Business Plan Competition regularly allows us to glimpse the next generation of
successful entrepreneurs. Our emerging expertise in information assurance means that we are at the forefront of new research and
training in data security.
Good business is grounded in good conduct, so we are fortunate to claim an excellent faculty of leaders in the ethical and
socially responsible conduct of business. For the second time, the Aspen Institute’s “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” recognition ranked
us 18th in the world for infusion of ethical and social issues in our curriculum. A partner organization, the New Mexico Ethics
Alliance, was created in 2007 and is housed at Anderson in the Pillmore Ethics Center. Our students continue to gain insight into
best practices by serving as fact finders for the annual New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards.
I am proud to be part of the Anderson community. Thanks for your great work!

on-profit businesses are
vulnerable when it comes to
criminal activity. Many nonprofits are targets for criminals due to a
lack of a fraud protection system and a
workforce which is typically made up of
volunteers or part-time employees. But
now a group of Anderson students is
reaching out to these organizations and
offering their services for free.
Anderson Professor Dr. Richard Brody
teaches a fraud-related graduate class each
spring (either Forensic Accounting or
Internal Auditing and Investigations). A key
component of each class is the Fraud
Awareness/Prevention Project.
“I meet with non-profits before the start
of the semester and ask where they most
need help,” says Brody. “It must be related
to the class I am teaching, which means
the focus is on some area of accounting
and fraud. For example, we might help
develop an internal control system or assist
in the creation of a policies and procedures
manual for the organization. It could also
relate to governance such as helping the
organization create and operate a Board of
Directors. Each project is very different.”
This semester 19 students are working
with six local organizations. Those
organizations are Watermelon Mountain
Ranch, Cornucopia Adult Day Services,
Outcomes, Inc., Barrett Foundation Inc.,
ARCA, and the New Mexico Association
for Home and Hospice. At these
businesses the students perform a variety of
jobs including creating spreadsheets and
helping with computer software. Brody
says the students’ efforts “absolutely help
the organizations, who appreciate the
contributions the students are making.”
This is the second year the class has
been offered. It was conceived after Brody,
who believes in the importance of
community service, decided to incorporate
his passion into the
class and get the
students involved. For
the students who sign
up participation is a
significant part of their
grade - counting for
25 percent.
“As a professor I
have never had
students complain,”
said Brody. “Their
involvement with the
organizations comes
on top of everything
else they are doing as
students such as taking
tests, writing papers
and going to class.”

First Basic Real Estate Course Offered at
The Anderson School of Management
John Lewinger, CEO of Grubb & Ellis and Jim Chynoweth, the managing director of CB Richard Ellis, are two of the top commercial real
estate professionals in Albuquerque and this semester they are bringing their skills into the classroom. Their course Real Estate Principles
gives Anderson students a real world approach to the industry. The idea of developing this course came from a simple premise.
“The real estate industry has hired many Anderson graduates throughout the years,” said Lewinger. “Then we realized we haven’t had
much of a relationship with UNM. It was time we stepped up and got involved.”
The result is a hands-on, practical approach on how to make a living in real estate. In the class, students are separated into several
groups and the goal of each group is to sell and develop a vacant piece of land. Throughout the semester the students take on the various
roles of broker, developer, banker, architect, and attorney as they learn the process of commercial real estate. Lewinger says the approach
helps the students figure out which job is right for them.
“I think they have a better chance of getting placed in the proper aspect within the industry. It allows them to make better decisions and
gives them more choices.”
In addition to teaching the course, Lewinger and Chynoweth are doing all they can to help the students succeed. The two serve on the
board of the Real Estate Education Foundation (REEF), a sponsor of the class. REEF will reimburse students for the $130 textbook if they
complete the course.
Lewinger says working with UNM has been a positive experience and in the long
term having an educated real estate workforce will not only help his industry but will
add to local economic development. 03

Robert O. Anderson
T
1917-2007
he namesake of the Anderson School passed away on December 2, 2007 at the age of
90. Robert O. Anderson, legendary oilman and well-known philanthropist, died at his
home in Roswell, NM. He is survived by Barbara, his wife of 68 years, seven children,
20 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Born in Chicago in 1917, Anderson started his career in New Mexico at the age of 24.
With help from his father, Anderson and his brothers purchased a refinery to produce aviation
fuel for the US Army Air Force. Over the next several years he acquired more refineries and
became a successful wildcatter with a major find at the Empire-Abo field in New Mexico.
In 1963 he merged his company into the Atlantic Refining Company of Philadelphia and
within three years he merged again, this time with Richfield Oil to form the new company Arco.
Anderson discovered the largest oil field in North America in 1967, when after a series of
failures he insisted on drilling one more exploratory well on the North Slope in Alaska. To date it has produced billions
of barrels of crude and accounts for a fifth of domestic oil production.
Anderson also led the seven-company effort to develop the Alaskan oil pipeline in 1974, the same year the business
school at UNM was named the Robert O. Anderson School of Management.
Interim Dean Amy Wohlert called Anderson “one of the nation’s foremost businessmen. His many contributions to
the oil industry, to the economy of New Mexico, and to the responsible conduct of business have made him an
enduring legend. The Anderson School will now carry his name proudly as a memorial.”
His son Robert B. is continuing the family legacy at UNM where he is currently a member of the Anderson
Foundation Board.

“These types of programs give our students the unique opportunity to conduct, analyze and
interpret research as part of developing an integrated marketing communications campaign,” said
Dr. Catherine Roster, who mentored the students throughout the marketing research phase of the Subaru Challenge.
“What makes this program so exceptional is that it is run entirely by students, for students,” says Benavidez. The program concluded with a
formal, marketing and public relations agency-style presentation that served as a unique opportunity for students to develop public speaking
and presentation skills, in addition to building self-confidence.
At the end of the challenge Anderson was one of the two top universities invited to Subaru of America, Inc. headquarters in Cherry Hill, NJ
to present their campaign. It was in this final phase that Anderson students won over Drexel University for first place honors.
This is the fourth consecutive school year a team from UNM has advanced to the final round in this type of marketing competition. In 2005
and 2006, Anderson MBA students placed first in the Cadillac National Case Study Competition. The school’s team finished second in 2007.
And the marketing classes are
hoping for great results again this
semester. Undergraduate marketing
students are currently participating in
an industry-education program,
sponsored by the American Public

giving them the opportunity to
develop a national and local

transportation. Ads from their

development’s central theme is the creation of wealth and high-paying jobs. “In what better way can
UNM contribute to New Mexico’s success than by using our technological expertise to start new
enterprises that potentially provide us with both?” asks Kassicieh. “UNM students increase our
labor pool when they graduate, but they can enrich that pool for themselves and future
generations when they use our technology resources to start companies that bring new
jobs to others and wealth to themselves. The Center for Support of Economic
