Brad Dodson is currently a teacher educator in the College of Agriculture. As the program coordinator, he manages the teacher credential program for Agriculture students interested in pursuing a teaching credential. He teaches education courses and the two leadership courses offered in the college. His interest in leadership began many years ago when he was hired into his first teaching position at Lemoore High School. One of his duties was to serve as the advisor to a leadership development club, the FFA. Six years later, he was hired at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and served as the advisor to the departmental club as well as taught Agricultural Education courses, supervised student teachers and coordinated the state in-service program for high school and community college teachers in California.
There is where a deep passion for youth leadership development grew. The focus of his graduate school experience at Texas A & M University was leadership and more specifically how to grow leaders. Following graduation, Dr. Dodson was hired by the California Department of Education as a regional consultant. His duties included training officer teams and assisting high school teachers train local chapter officer teams. He was also asked to serve as the State FFA Assistant advisor responsible for training the state officer team. In 2000, he was hired here at CSU Chico to his current position. While here, he taught the Capstone Leadership course for the Leadership minor, taught leadership conferences, and offered countless training for students and teachers on leadership development. He continues to have interest in leadership and interpersonal skill development.
