Assistant Director of Recruitment and Admissions
Christine Anderson is the Assistant Director of Recruitment and Admissions at the Archer Center where she manages recruitment and selection for the undergraduate and graduate Archer Fellowship Programs. Christine works closely with campus leaders to promote the program on each UT System campus.
The Archer Fellowship Program was established by The University of Texas System in conjunction with former U.S. Representative Bill Archer as a way to bring highly motivated and accomplished students to Washington, D.C., for a comprehensive academic and professional experience. Home to many government, media, research, and cultural institutions, Washington, D.C., offers unparalleled opportunities for career development and cultural enrichment. While in Washington, D.C., students complete UT Tyler coursework taught by esteemed professors and gain hands on work experience in an internship of their choice. By living together in luxury condominiums near Capitol Hill, Archer Fellows build lasting friendships and professional connections with each other. Tailored to students’ own personal and intellectual interests, the Archer Fellowship Program provides an experience that students find professionally, academically, and personally rewarding.
Prior to joining the Archer Center, Christine served as the Archer Fellowship Program campus coordinator for the UT Austin campus from 2014-2016. She also advised students pursuing certificates in Global Studies; Human Rights & Social Justice; Media, Culture & Identities; Public Policy; and Social Inequality, Health & Policy through the Bridging Disciplines Programs at UT Austin from 2008- 2016. In these roles, Christine offered guidance and practical help to students as they pursued their academic goals both in and outside of the classroom through challenging coursework and internships. She brings her passion for student success and student advocacy to her role with the Archer Center.
Born to a native Texan father and German mother, Christine has strong roots in both places. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor of arts in history and a master of arts in Middle Eastern studies. Christine enjoys hiking in Austin and the Texas Hill Country, loves traveling to Germany to visit family, and is the proud mother of a sophomore at Texas A&M.
