New chair honors Hansen A new endowment honoring Dave Hansen will add a faculty member to the economics department at Linfield. Gifts are requested to complete the funding of The Dave Hansen Chair in Economics. Hansen, who was named professor emeritus of economics at Commencement, joined the faculty in 1969 and retired in December. He also served 22 years as dean of students. The surprise announcement of the endowment was made by President Thomas L. Hellie during the presentation of Hansen’s “last lecture” before a packed audience of colleagues, former students and friends. The $2 million endowment, when completed, will provide a permanent investment in the outstanding teacher-scholars in economics. Securing gifts for endowed faculty positions is a goal of the 2012- 18 Linfield College Strategic Plan. Last fall, two new endowed positions, in creative writing and in political science, were announced. Contributions may be made online at www.linfield.edu/gift, noting “Dave Hansen Chair,” or by mail to College Relations at Linfield College. Later this summer, Hansen will be presented with a citation that lists the names of all donors. For more information, call College Relations at 503-883-2217.
