Hofstra University - Pride & Purpose

"Pride & Purpose" came from the great celebration of our 75th anniversary and our history and traditions. The Hofstra community is one that challenges one another to reach higher … to use our talents and gifts to strengthen ourselves, our community, the University and the world around us.

It is also a reminder that we, both individually and collectively, serve greater purposes, as students, leaders, scholars and members of a greater community. We are part of a democratic society, engaged in service, politics, governance and advocacy.

Pride has many meanings.

Pride has many meanings. It reminds us of the lion family—strong independently but even more powerful as a group. The Hofstra Pride is every member of the Hofstra community – students, staff, faculty and administrators – who all contribute to make our campus a great place to live, work and play. At Hofstra, you can belong to many prides. Your pride may be an athletic team, a student club, a sorority or fraternity, your roommates, your dorm, a study group – anyone you connect with.

Every pride has a purpose, and we discover and strengthen that purpose through our affiliation with Hofstra. In turn, we contribute to Hofstra’s purpose of assisting people to become successful not only in their careers, but also in life—as better leaders, better citizens, better family members and better friends.
Pride also reminds us of our respect for our history and for our fellow students, faculty, alumni and community members, as well as our collective effort to advance our alma mater and improve, innovate and adapt to an ever-changing world.
