Hello Hofstra Students,

As the school year is coming to a close, I want to draw your attention to a unique opportunity to get involved on campus next year.  I am reaching out to you as the current chairperson of the Student Affairs Committee on the University Senate to encourage you to run for a position as a senator.

Being a part of the Student Affairs Committee would allow you to work on initiatives that affect the lives of every student on campus.  This year, the Student Affairs Committee senators worked on clarifying and expanding the mental health services offered on campus, collaborated with the Student Government Association to host an event for students to talk directly with Public Safety, provided input on a policy change to consequences for plagiarism cases, and more.

If you have an initiative or an improvement you want to see, I urge you to apply.  You will be able to work with peers, professors, deans, vice presidents, and even the provost to make progress and find solutions to the issues most important to you.  The Student Affairs Committee looks forward to welcoming more diverse voices and dedicated students to our group.

I hope you consider running for a position to improve and serve the Hofstra community.


Carissa Ramirez
Student Affairs Committee Chair
