At that time the University website posted a tribute to Geoff including comments from Vice Chancellor Professor Michael Barber and Faculty Dean Professor Phyllis Tharenou.
The personal responses to that tribute including many of Geoff’s students, past and present, reflected how deeply his loss was felt – as a highly-respected politics and public policy expert; as an inspiring educator; and as an affable and charming man.
With the support of Geoff’s family, Flinders University has established the Geoff Anderson Memorial Fund with a view to creating and awarding a scholarship or prize in Geoff’s name, to facilitate future educational opportunities in the broad area of politics and public policy.
Geoff Anderson’s passion for teaching saw him relish the challenge of engaging first year students in the issues that bedevil contemporary public policy. He taught at senior levels but it was his large class of first years undertaking An Introduction to Public Policy to which his memorial fund will be devoted.
The top student will be rewarded a cash prize and invited to attend a luncheon hosted by the School of Social and Policy Studies where speeches will be made remembering Geoff and his contribution to Flinders University and to encouraging students to believe that ‘they can do it’.
Flinders University extends an invitation to staff, graduates and students alike in addition to the wider community, to make a contribution toward the Geoff Anderson Memorial Fund.

Dr Lesley Shorne worked tirelessly for the cause of women’s health in South Australia for more than 25 years in both practice and promotion.
A leading forensic medical examiner and pioneer of cervical screening, she was also a committed advocate for women, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. During her career, she achieved significant improvements for women in the medical and legal processes related to sexual assault.
In recognition of her work in Women’s Health, she was included as one of the ten most inspirational women in the 2009 Women’s Honour Roll published by the Office of Women, and also was selected as a finalist for South Australian of the Year for 2011.
