Administrative Staff Council salutes Ferrari winner Barbara Hoffman

As Barbara Hoffman knows, if students aren’t safe and healthy, learning cannot take place and the University experience is for naught. In her mission to improve the wellness of every student on campus, Hoffman touches lives—almost 15,000 last year alone.

As assistant director of the Student Health Service and health promotion coordinator at the Wellness Connection, Hoffman creates and leads programs aimed at keeping students free from dangerous drinking, sexual assault and other threats to their physical and mental well-being.

Her colleagues recognized her singular dedication at the Oct. 3 Administrative Staff Council Fall Reception by presenting her the 2006 Michael R. Ferrari Award.
