Lynn Hawley
Professor
Bio:
   B.A., University of California, Santa Barbara
   M.A., Boston University

Lynn originally wanted to be a marine biologist but ended up majoring in history. She blames all the incredibly encouraging history professors she met at UC Santa Barbara, Boston University, and University of Michigan. All of these places gave her opportunities to learn and teach and Delta gave her the opportunity to teach a women's history class as a full-time job. She feels very fortunate that she gets to do this job every day since she is sincerely interested in this subject and she has met so many wonderful students while teaching here.
