On the last day of Black History Month, we’re continuing to honor GGU’s own Black History in the Making. Greg Hodge, JD ’85, is a highly regarded community leader, social change activist, and organizational development consultant. His work focuses on the conditions and aspirations of boys and men of color and making racial equity actionable in organizations.

“I think Black History Month is really important, but I would want my new grandchild to not believe that February is the only month in the year when she’s supposed to learn about her history,” said Greg. “I want to impart that she’s supposed to know her history and the history of Indigenous Peoples, the Latinx community, the history of the Irish and Italians, the history of everybody as much as you can in the country to understand where the economic disparity and mistrust began.”

We continue to celebrate Black History Month by honoring GGU’s own Black History in the Making. We're proud of Robert Shoffner's rich history with GGU as director of MBA programs, director of the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Program, adjunct professor, and EMBA alum. He also served as director of the San Mateo Small Business Development Center and enjoyed a long career in financial services.

“I believe passionately in small business and I’m concerned with the outsized impact of the pandemic on minority businesses," Robert says. “Forty percent of Black businesses that were here last year are no longer here. I want to see those businesses survive and thrive because they are so important to their communities. If you’re going to have strong communities you have to have strong small businesses.”
