Biography

Dr. Dianne L. Hoff is the Dean of the College of Education and Professor of Educational Leadership. She teaches graduate courses in education law and policy. Her research focuses on the social/political context of schooling, especially how law, policy, cultural norms, and practices can intersect to perpetuate discrimination and marginalization. She is also nationally recognized for her research on contemporary issues that present legal and moral dilemmas for schools. Most recently, for example, she has published articles on pay-to-play, cyber-bullying, and appropriate accommodations for students with peanut allergies. Prior to her appointment at UWG, Dr. Hoff was a high school teacher in Indiana, a principal in large schools in Georgia and California, and then a professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Maine.
