Marketing and Communications

Getting the Message Out

The Office of Marketing and Communications at Hofstra serves as a communications hub for news generated by the entire Hofstra community – faculty, staff, administration, students, alumni, and friends. That news ranges from the receipt of prestigious faculty and student awards to the introduction of new academic programs to the retirement of a longtime colleague – and includes everything in between.
