Dr. Gerald Ladhoff
Northern Arizona University

Dr. Ladhoff retired NAU professor of sociology and criminal justice, and his wife Susan are true supporters of Northern Arizona University and the NAU Athletic Program. “NAU means so much to us, our charity is wide-spread, but nothing compares to what we want for NAU.” The Ladhoffs have contributed generously to the Gerald Ladhoff Scholarship. This endowed gift is unique in that it was originated by an NAU alum and former student athlete who was so inspired by Jerry’s support, mentorship, and kindness that he created this endowment in Jerry’s honor. This scholarship reflects Dr. Ladhoff’s true passion: swimming. As a former competitive swimmer for UCLA, Dr. Ladhoff is now very active in the NAU Swimming & Diving Program – befriending the athletes and welcoming them into his home for a celebratory banquet each year. “It is deeply gratifying to be a part of Northern Arizona University. NAU has given so much life to our family.”
