Migrating southward, seeking refuge from the cold, snowy, dark days of winter 22 years ago, Wendy Kauffman came to Sandhills from a community college in Ohio where she taught for 14 years.

Beginning at Sandhills as an instructor in Information Systems, she found a passion for online instruction and eventually became the Distance Learning Coordinator. Wendy is now the Dean of Academic Support which allows her to continue her involvement in online learning. She also has oversight of the Kelly Tutoring Center, Disability Services, and the QEP. Wendy takes pride in ensuring students have the necessary support to be successful at Sandhills.

“Sandhills is not a typical community college,” Wendy said. “We are a step above the rest. The college takes pride in providing a student-centered, well-rounded experience.”

A dog-lover and rescue family, Wendy and her husband currently care for seven dogs which keep them very busy.
