The Board of Directors of the Isla Vista Youth Projects (IVYP) has announced that out of a pool of more than 70 applicants and at the end of a three-month process, it has selected Lori Lander Goodman to become the agency’s new executive director.

As LuAnn Miller prepares to retire after more than 30 years as executive director, Goodman will assume her new post on Jan. 29.

Goodman comes to IVYP from CALM, where she has worked since 2011, serving as chief development officer and member of the senior management team and focusing on strategic planning, communications and fundraising, and board development.

In addition to her many years of nonprofit management, Goodman has worked in education and recreation settings as a camp counselor and program director, daycare provider, teacher, and youth-group advisor.

Goodman holds a bachelor’s degree in women’s studies from UC Santa Cruz, a master’s degree in social work from the University of Southern California, and a master’s in nonprofit management from Hebrew Union College.

She was awarded an honorary doctorate in nonprofit management in 2016.

Goodman and her family moved to Santa Barbara in 2009. Her husband Evan Goodman is the executive director of Santa Barbara Hillel in Isla Vista and serving the Jewish community of UCSB.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
