Master of Health Administration

Alumni Association


The Master of Health Administration (MHA) Alumni Association proudly represents graduates of the Master of Health Administration programs and students who graduated with a Master of Arts in Health Administration at Hofstra University. The mission of the MHA Alumni Association is to provide graduates with a platform for continuing the relationships established during their time in the program, as well as opportunities to remain connected and involved. The MHA Alumni Association has a goal of continually providing graduates with tools and events to further enhance their personal and professional lives.

To help keep graduates and current students of the programs connected, the MHA Alumni Association hosts networking and other events annually. We are currently developing an alumni-current student mentoring program and will provide comments and suggestions on the practical needs of the health services sector to assist in curriculum development.

A goal of the MHA programs is to provide a curriculum to its students that is up to date, relevant to the needs of the community, develops strong leadership and communication skills, and provides practical or applied lessons inside and outside of the classroom. Graduates are a key resource in meeting this goal. We strongly encourage you to join the MHA Alumni Association to remain connected with other graduates, attend events, and help the MHA programs grow.

You may join the MHA Alumni Association here and please keep your information up to date by contacting the team at the Alumni House. Once a member, you will be added to the mailing list allowing you to receive all announcements and opportunities first.

Congratulations on your continued achievements!

Why Your Support Matters

The MHA Alumni Association depends on the support of its members to achieve its mission. Donors such as yourself help to build and strengthen the association, as well as a professional network centered around the MHA program at Hofstra University. Your donation helps the MHA Alumni Association fund its activities and events. The association has also started a scholarship fund; once this fund reaches a certain dollar amount, the MHA Alumni Association will provide an annual scholarship to an outstanding MHA student. As the fund grows, additional scholarships will be provided.

You may contribute a gift by contacting the team at the Alumni House.
