LAVC Alumna Andra Hoffman Elected to the CA Community College Trustees Board

Congratulations to LACCD Board Member and LAVC alumna Andra Hoffman who was recently elected to serve on the Board of California Community College Trustees for the Community College League of California.

LAVC Alumna Andra Hoffman Elected to the CA Community College Trustees Board

The Community College League of California (CCLC) has elected Andra Hoffman to serve on the California Community College Trustees Board of the League (CCCT). The term is through July 2017; as the incumbent she will be eligible to serve three more terms. Hoffman was elected to the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Board of Trustees in March 2015.

“It’s an honor to be elected by the CCCT Board to fill this important vacancy,” said Hoffman. “I'm
proud to represent the nation’s largest community college district on the CCCT Board and looking forward to working with my colleagues throughout the state on legislative and policy issues to provide increased access and affordability for anybody who wants to attend any of California’s 113 community colleges.”
 
The CCCT Board’s primary mission – promoting and advancing public education by seeking citizen and legislative support for community colleges – dovetails with Hoffman’s experience as an advocate for legislation that improves higher education. She has served on the CCLC’s Advisory Committee for Legislation for the past five years and teaches California and American government as an adjunct professor in the political science department at Glendale Community College.
 
For nearly twenty years, Hoffman has been at Glendale Community College managing the Career and Job Placement Centers. These units represent key student support services that partner with business, industry and the community and collaborate with economic and workforce development partnerships to benefit students. She has served as Director of Government Relations for the college advocating on behalf of legislation affecting higher education. She continues to lobby for issues that affect California community colleges and organizes delegations of students, faculty and staff to represent those issues in Sacramento. One such issue is the California Dream Act, on which she has worked since the passage of AB 540 and continues to work on behalf of undocumented students to ensure their success.
 
Hoffman is past president of the National Women’s Political Caucus of the San Fernando Valley and continues to mentor and support young women and girls. She attended Los Angeles Valley College, received her bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies from Antioch University, and has a master’s degree in Public Administration from California State University, Northridge. She lives in Encino and
has two grown children.
