In addition, she has served as chairperson of one of the Commission's Compliance and Reports Committees. During her tenure with COC, she has chaired a host of accreditation, reaffirmation and special committees in most of the 11 states in the southern region.

"These experiences have provided me with invaluable professional development and enabled me to use the insight and expertise gained to successfully guide our college through the accreditation processes over the years," Hoffman said.
