MIAMI - Alumnus Jack R. Anderson has presented Miami University with a $1.5 million gift to establish the Jack R. Anderson Professorship in Finance.
A national search will be conducted to bring a renowned scholar to the endowed position.
Anderson graduated from Miami in 1947 with a degree in accountancy and earned a master's degree from Columbia Business School in New York.

XU student awarded ROTC distinction
XAVIER - Xavier University's Patrick Owsiak, 21, of New Berlin, Wis., was recently ranked 11th of 4,681 ROTC cadets nationwide on the Order of Merit list by the U.S. Army Cadet Command.
Annually, the command ranks senior cadets in order to assign job specialties as they prepare to be commissioned as 2nd lieutenants after graduation. This year, the command reviewed cadets from 270 universities.
The top 20 percent on that list will also earn the title of "distinguished military graduate" upon graduation. Owsiak, along with fellow Xavier cadets Patrick Hicks, 21, of Olmstead Falls, Ohio, and Eric Wicktora, 22, of Cleveland earned that status. Hicks and Wicktora both ranked in the top 10 percent in the country.
There are 16 cadets in Xavier's senior class. All are scheduled to receive their Army commissions May 14.
