Employee Comment

Hofstra University has a wonderful work culture and environment. Hofstra values not only its employees, but also their families. This is something that I find to be incredible about working at Hofstra. Not only are Hofstra employees considered a part of the Pride, but their extended family members are as well. Hofstra cultivates an environment of inclusion unlike anywhere else I have worked. I feel as though I am a valuable member of the community every day. Hofstra is continually looking for its employees to contribute new and innovative ideas.
