Invisible Man on Campus, Joe Royer

ImageEach day, Joe Royer reports to work at Anderson University looking forward to the challenge of remaining “invisible” on campus. As executive director of facilities and property management, he wants others to notice only well-functioning, beautiful surroundings, not maintenance or property issues.

Originally from Anderson, Joe previously worked for Delco Remy before coming to AU as physical plant director in 1984. He has had several responsibilities over the years, including risk manager, purchasing agent, and supervisor over the police and security area.  Joe earned his MBA in 1996 and has also taught adult education classes in management and organizational leadership for the past 15 years.

Joe considers himself to be a “puzzle” kind of guy who enjoys keeping his mind active and engaged. Choosing to pursue his MBA was more of a challenge to see how he would handle returning to the classroom after 20 years. With no plan to build his resume or make a career move, Joe’s decision to earn a graduate degree reflected his continuing desire for self-improvement and personal fulfillment.

Joe believes you should “do the thing you enjoy so you’ll never work a day in your life,” and he advises others to do the same.

*Joe was the 2012 Distinguished Academic Leader awarded by the Falls School of Business MBA Program.


The AU MBA program is a traditional MBA program designed for the working professional. Classes meet in the evening and mostly one night each week. Most students complete the program in less than 23 months. The MBA program is offered on the Anderson campus and in several locations in the Indianapolis area. The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) nationally accredits the Anderson University MBA program, and Anderson University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
