Congratulations to Wayne Anderson for being featured in the September 2015 issue of Mind’s Eye. His work is also being highlighted on the Research web page starting today and will soon also be on the Missouri State homepage.
“Anderson, who jokes that he’s been on campus forever, was practicing law in the state of California when he became interested in the issues of software development and started writing articles on the topic from the legal perspective. After teaching business law at Missouri State for more than 20 years, the computer information systems graduate program coordinator recruited Anderson to teach a course on legal issues in the information technology arena – a course that changes each semester due to new issues and nuances that appear.”

FGB is delighted and humbled to have another of our faculty elected to MSU’s “Wall of Fame.” Former Department Head and Professor Dr. George Swales will be inducted in a ceremony to be held this October during Homecoming Week.
