Although this year’s semester is coming to an end, the next chapter in BSU and NTC’s stories will begin with Dr. John Hoffman as their new president.
Hoffmam’s extensive career in education also includes being Chair of the Educational Leadership Department and Director of its doctoral program at California State University, dean of students at Concordia University, Irvine, and multiple student affairs roles at Concordia University, St. Paul.
Dr. John Hoffman will start his new position as president for BSU and NTC effective July 1.
