Welcome from the Associate Dean & Director of the New Opportunities at Hofstra Scholars Program (NOAH)

Welcome to the New Opportunities at Hofstra Scholars Program (NOAH). For more than half a century, NOAH has provided highly motivated and diverse scholars with access to transformational curricular and co-curricular learning experiences at one of the country’s finest postsecondary institutions.

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” Those famous words of civil rights pioneer and advocate Frederick Douglass capture the character and spirit of NOAH scholars, past and present. NOAH scholars are among the university’s most distinguished leaders on campus, advocates in their communities and successful alumni. Our ultimate goal is to help our talented students become change agents in their families, communities and the world.

Please feel free to explore our webpage or contact me directly if you have any questions.
