About the Center
Lindgren Math Tutoring Center is funded by a generous endowment from Kenneth Lindgren, a former mathematics instructor here at CSULB. The annual distribution of this endowment supports a math faculty member with release time to serve as the center's director. Part of this endowment also funds the Lindgren Teaching Assistant Scholarship in the department every year.

Ken Lindgren was a highly regarded mathematics instructor at CSULB. Ken loved teaching math. He shared his passion for math with his students by making math relevant in the world today. He always encouraged students to come by for office hours so he could help students solidify their understanding of math and how this knowledge could apply to their own lives and professions. Ken realized many students were afraid of math, so he worked hard to challenge himself to add humor, real life stories and relevance to his classes. Students loved Ken and he had a mutual fondness for them.
Ken also served as head coach of Long Beach State Men's Water Polo Team for 24 years, producing 32 All Americans and 8 Olympians. He also coached two Olympic teams: one Men's and one Woman's earning a silver medal with each team.
Ken Lindgren will always be remembered as a dedicated educator, mentor, coach, alumnus and friend.
