Pete Hoffman, who has headed Armstrong State University’s Liberty campus for three years, has been promoted to director of governmental relations and community engagement at the Savannah school.
In this position, he will work with the office of the president and the office of advancement to strengthen university relationships with business, political and military leadership in Liberty, Bryan and Chatham counties.
“Pete has deep ties to the Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield communities, as well as local, state and federal legislative delegations,” Armstrong President Linda Bleicken said. “In his new role, he will continue to be an enormous asset to Armstrong.”
Prior to this appointment, Hoffman served as the director of the Armstrong Liberty Center since July 2012. Responsible for developing and building an enrollment strategy, which led to enrollment growth at the Liberty County campus, Hoffman was also instrumental in generating support for the new Liberty Center building, which will open in January.
