Farewell to Linda Hoff

The School of Education announces that Linda Hoff, Ph.D., will retire from her role as the director of the Teacher Education Division at the end of the 2021-22 academic year.


As often is the case with highly regarded coworkers, we make this announcement with both pride in having served with such a distinguished colleague and sadness in knowing that we will now serve without Linda's wise and courageous leadership. Her list of accomplishments is as long as they are important – suffice to say that under her leadership, the teacher education program has grown to where it is now recognized as one of the finest teacher preparation programs in the Central Valley, if not the entire state.   


The School of Education will begin a search for this most important position at the beginning of this next academic year.


While Linda sees her season as director of Teacher Education as coming to an end, she may continue to serve FPU as associate dean of partnerships and pathways in the 2022-23 academic year.
