Welcome from President Stuart Rabinowitz

Welcome to the Web site for Hofstra University. Hofstra, located in Long Island, New York, about 25 miles east of Manhattan, offers excellent undergraduate and graduate programs on a beautiful suburban campus. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hofstra, I invite you to tour this site and discover all the things we have to offer -- an academically challenging environment, a nationally-renowned faculty, state-of-the-art living and learning facilities, and exciting cultural programs and events.

I served on the Hofstra faculty for close to 30 years before becoming President in June 2001. This is a very exciting time to be part of Hofstra. Our University is continuously evolving and seeking new ways to give our students the support and resources they need to achieve at the highest possible levels.

Through this Web site, you will learn much about Hofstra University. There is detailed information here for both prospective and current students on course offerings, campus resources and social activities. Hofstra alumni may be able to track down a favorite professor or news of an old friend or roommate.

I hope you enjoy this electronic visit. If you are not already a member of the Hofstra family, consider paying us a visit in the near future or feel free to e-mail us any questions you might have.
