Fred Hofmann Memorial Scholarship Fund

Please join us in honoring Fred Hofmann and his extraordinary legacy of service to Santa Barbara City College and the greater Santa Barbara community.

Fred was a beloved member of the SBCC faculty for more than 50 years. During that time, he shared his deep passion for and knowledge of current events with students of all ages and backgrounds. He began his teaching career as an adjunct professor in SBCC's Political Science Department. In recent years, he taught current events through SBCC's School of Extended Learning via the Vitality Older Adult program. He was also a founding member of the SBCC Legacy Project Committee, which works to preserve SBCC's history through first-person narratives.

To honor all that Fred contributed to the college, the SBCC Foundation, in partnership with campus leadership and many of Fred's former colleagues and students, has created the Fred Hofmann Memorial Scholarship. This new scholarship fund will support SBCC students pursuing the study of political science and life-long learning through the School of Extended Learning.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 in celebration of Fred's 50 years of service to SBCC.

Thank you!
