Dave Hansen was the Dean of Students and professor of economics at Linfield University for many years and impacted the Linfield community in incredible ways.President Thomas L. Hellie called Hansen’s impact as dean of students, a position he held for over 20 years, “legendary.” It is in his honor that this award is passed on to Linfield community members who share his quality of outstanding service.
