About speaker Dale Hockstra:
Dale Hockstra grew up in San Diego, California and attended Occidental College from 1965 to 1969. He graduated in June 1969 with a math major, then went to graduate school at Stanford University in the College of Engineering, earning MS and Ph.D. degrees in Operations Research. His teaching career started as an Assistant Professor in the College of Business at Washington State University, but was mostly spent at two small, private colleges, The University of Evansville (Indiana) and Menlo College (California). He taught a wide range of courses in applied math including management science, spreadsheet modeling, operations management, decision analysis, simulation modeling, and statistics. He also served nine years as Dean of the School of Business at UE, and seven years as Dean of Academic Affairs at Menlo. Upon retiring in 2014 he and his wife moved to Whidbey Island, Washington. For the last couple of years, he has taught part-time as an adjunct math professor for Northwest Indian College, a tribal college that serves indigenous students throughout the northwest (via Zoom).
