Member of the Board

Andra Hoffman was elected to the Los Angeles Community College District Board
of Trustees in March of 2015.

For nearly twenty years, Ms. Hoffman has served students at Glendale Community
College managing the Career and Job Placement Centers. These two 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.

Previously, she served as Director of Government Relations for the college
advocating for legislation impacting 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, where she has been with the movement since the
passage of AB 540 and continues to work on behalf of undocumented students to
ensure their success.

Hoffman currently serves on the California Community College Trustees Board of
the League (CCCT), is a past President of the National Women’s Political Caucus
of the San Fernando Valley and continues to mentor and support young women
and girls.

Ms. Hoffman began her career at Glendale Community College spearheading
AmeriCorps programs focused on Early Childhood education and literacy, welfareto-
work, and teacher preparation and training. Ms. Hoffman is also an adjunct
professor in the Political Science Department where she teaches classes in
California and American Government.

Ms. Hoffman’s early career was in the non-profit sector working for a small
organization dedicated to serving abused and neglected children through art.
She then was recruited by the San Fernando Valley Girl Scout Council as the
Director of Community Outreach. In that capacity she developed programs
and services for girls in homeless shelters and housing projects in the East
San Fernando Valley.

Ms. Hoffman 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.
