Assistant Professor, Chair

Academic Support Center

“I seek to help students find success in a particular assignment, course, or course of study.”

Linda Gnagey balances teaching developmental coursework with roles as director of the Academic Support Center and advisor to conditionally admitted first year students. She thrives on making connections for herself and for students—with other faculty and staff as they work with students and between students’ skill development and academic goals. She is accredited as an Irlen Syndrome/Scotopic Sensitivity screener and National Tutoring Association tutor trainer. She holds education degrees from Goshen College (B.A.) and James Madison University (M.Ed.) and enjoys Biblical and language study. Swimming for exercise, attending theater and sports events, and traveling with her husband Keith and adult children are favorite pastimes. She is an active member of Community Mennonite Church.
