Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees member Andra Hoffman was recently elected to serve as the board’s president for a one-year term.
With a call to “put students first,” Hoffman said she intends to emphasize “a year of transparency and accountability,” as well as zero tolerance for any disrespectful behavior at board meetings.
Hoffman was first elected to the LACCD board in 2015. She has 22 years of service as a community college professor and administrator, and currently works at Glendale Community College. She noted her priorities for next year, including expanding family resource centers, funding Dream Centers to support DACA and other undocumented students, improving outreach and retention of African American students, increasing diversity in staff and curriculum, continuing the L.A. College Promise program, training early childhood educators, confronting student homelessness and investing in technology.
“These are ambitious goals, but they are not the only issues we face,” Hoffman said. “We need to embrace Gov. Newsom’s bold plan to serve all Californians from cradle to career and we must be intentional in our efforts to do so. In the entire system of higher education, no entity is better able to fulfill that goal than the community colleges and we at LACCD must commit ourselves to lead the way.”
