Hofstra University is a private, co-educational institution located in Hempstead, New York on Long Island.Founded in 1935 as a part of New York University, it became an independent school - Hofstra College – and later, a university, in 1963.The Hofstra University campus - spaning over 240 acres - is currently home to more than 4,000 resident students and has an overall enrollment above 8,000.Hofstra University has been named after Mr. Hofstra, whose estate eventually became the home for the university.When Kate Mason Hofstra died in 1933, she left behind a lengthy will specifying the eventual fate of each of her possessions and among them, the estate was to be used to create a memorial to her husband.Eventually, as a fitting tribute to Mr. Hofstra, an educational institution- Hofstra University - was conceived on the site.It might have been the Hofstras vision - a university bearing their name. Their opulent home – the Netherlands – is now the centerpiece of the university, and through the campus and its students, their family name continues to live on.Hofstra University offers about 130 undergraduate and 140 graduate programs in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business, Communication, Education and Allied Human Services, and Honors studies, as well as a School of Law.The university supplements its academic diversity with state-of-the-art classrooms, excellent library resources with extensive online and print collections, learning and laboratory facilities, and broadband access to the Internet.Its location on Long Island ensures that the students are never far from the academic, cultural, and career opportunities in New York.On the extra-curricular front, the Hofstra University campus is world renowned for its annual Shakespeare plays. The campus, in fact, has been hosting them for more than half a century.The university also boasts an arboretum – one of only 400-odd in U.S. – and a two-acre bird sanctuary, and has been the operator of Long Island's oldest public radio station, since 1959.

Hofstra Pride football

The Hofstra Pride football (formerly the Hofstra Flying Dutchmen) program was the intercollegiate American football team for Hofstra University located in Hempstead, New York. The team competed in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and were members of the Colonial Athletic Association. The school's first football team was fielded in 1937. Hofstra participated in football from 1937 to 2009, compiling an all-time record of 403–268–11. [2] On December 3, 2009, the university announced it was terminating the football program. Under NCAA rules, any football players who chose to transfer to other schools were eligible to play immediately, and not subjected to normal residency waiting periods. Scholarship-holders who wished to stay at Hofstra were permitted to keep their scholarships. [3] Funds previously used for the football program went into the creation of the medical school, and enhancing a variety of programs, including public health, hard sciences and engineering. [4]

Basketball Edit

The men’s basketball team experienced its most successful period in 2000 and 2001, winning back-to-back America East Men's Basketball Tournament titles and making their first appearances in the Division I championship since the 1970s.

Wrestling Edit

In 1977, Hofstra wrestler Nick Gallo won the NCAA National Championship in the 126 lb weight class and was a member of the 1976 and 1980 U.S. Olympic Freestyle Wrestling teams, he was also given the title "Most Outstanding Wrestler" in the 1977 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. [3]

Dennis Papadatos is the current head coach. [4] The Pride wrestling team competes on campus in the Mack Sports Complex. Former Pride wrestler Chris Weidman was a 2-time NCAA Division I All-American (6th in 2006 & 3rd in 2007, both at 197 lb) and is now the current UFC Middleweight Champion. Hofstra can claim 30 All-American honors among 19 wrestlers through 2018.

Hofstra’s wrestling team was formerly a member of the CAA like all other Pride teams until the CAA ended sponsorship of wrestling in 2013.

Football Edit

The school fielded a football team from 1937 to 2009, when the sport was cancelled due to costs and declining attendance. [5] The team was an associate member of the Atlantic 10 Conference from 2001 until 2009. Funds previously used for the football program went into the creation of the medical school, and enhancing a variety of programs, including hard sciences and engineering. [6]

    (1942-1943) (1965-1994) (some sports competed as independents) (1994-2001) (2001–present) (football competed in the A-10 until 2006)

Two of Bill Cosby's early comedy albums include routines about a game between the now-defunct Hofstra football team and Temple University. [7] The routines are "TV Football" (from I Started Out as a Child) and its expanded re-telling "Hofstra" (from Why Is There Air?).

An entire episode of Everybody Loves Raymond was devoted to a main character, Frank Barone, catching a record-setting field goal ball kicked by a Hofstra player at a game against Northeastern that Ray Barone predicted to be a "tickle fight".


Even before the birth of the United States of America, the “citizen-soldier” has held a significant role in the defense of the nation. Beginning in the Revolutionary War, the “citizen-soldier” secured America’s freedom and continues to defend that freedom today. The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is an essential element of this proud, time-honored tradition.

The origins of military instruction in civilian colleges dates back to 1819 when CPT Alden Partridge founded the American Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy, at Norwich, Vermont. Today, that institution of higher learning is called Norwich University located in Northfield, VT. In 1862, the U.S. Congress recognized the need for military training at civilian educational institutions. The Morrill Land Grant Act was enacted to fulfill this need, which donated lands and money to establish colleges that provided practical instruction in agriculture, mechanical, and military sciences.

The United States Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) as we know it today dates from the National Defense Act of 1916. College campuses provided quality officers to meet the rapidly expanding needs of mobilization. World War I prevented the full development of civilian educators and military professionals working together. At the conclusion of World War I, the program was fully implemented on college campuses. The success of this effort was demonstrated in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, and throughout the current Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). In 1964, the ROTC Vitalization Act improved the program by adding scholarships and expanding junior ROTC opportunities. The inclusion of women in the program in 1973 was another important milestone. The United States Army ROTC Cadet Command was organized 15 April 1986 at historic Fort Monroe, Virginia, blending the vibrancy of a new command with the traditions of the Army’s second oldest continuously active installation. In 2013, Cadet Command moved to Ft. Knox, KY where it currently holds the annual Cadet Leadership Course (CLC) or Advance Camp every summer for MSIII’s entering their MSIV year. A new chapter with the consolidation of all ROTC activities within Cadet Command, an organization forging its own identity and its own traditions. Today, Army ROTC opportunities are available across the country at almost three hundred host units, as well as hundreds of partnership schools.


The college – established as an extension of New York University (NYU) – was founded on the estate of a wealthy couple, a lumber entrepreneur of Dutch ancestry, William S. Hofstra (1861–1932) and his second wife, Kate Mason (1854–1933). The extension had been proposed by a Hempstead resident, Truesdel Peck Calkins, who had been superintendent of schools for Hempstead. In her will, Kate Mason provided the bulk of their property and estate to be used for a charitable, scientific or humanitarian purpose, to be named in honor of her husband. In the spring of 1934, the estate was offered to be converted into a sanitarium for those suffering with polio by the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation, specifically offering to President Franklin Roosevelt, but nothing had materialized from it. [10] Two friends, Howard Brower and James Barnard, were asked to decide what to do with the estate. Calkins remarked to Brower that he had been looking for a site to start an institution of higher education, and the three men agreed it would be an appropriate use of the estate. Calkins approached the administration at New York University, and they expressed interest.

The college was founded as a coeducational, commuter institution with day and evening classes. The first day of classes at Nassau-Hofstra Memorial College was September 23, 1935, with 150 students enrolled and an equal divide between men and women. [11] The first class of students was made up of 159 day and 621 evening students. The tuition fee for the year was $375. The college obtained provisional charter status, and its official name was changed to Hofstra College on January 16, 1937.

Hofstra College separated from New York University on July 1, 1939 [12] and was granted an absolute charter on February 16, 1940.

Hofstra's original logo was a seal created by Professor of Art Constant van de Wall in 1937. The insignia was derived from the official seal of the reigning house of the Netherlands, the House of Orange-Nassau. Used with the permission of the monarch of the Netherlands, the seal also included the Dutch national motto Je Maintiendrai, meaning “I stand steadfast” (literally “I shall maintain”) in French.

In 1939, Hofstra celebrated its first four-year commencement, graduating a class of 83 students. The first graduates had strong feelings for the new institution. When they were allowed to choose whether they would receive degrees from New York University or Hofstra, they overwhelmingly chose Hofstra degrees. Academic recognition of Hofstra was affirmed when the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools accepted Hofstra for membership on November 22, 1940. Early in 1941 the college was elected to membership in the American Association of Colleges.

In 1950, Calkins Gymnasium was the site of the first Shakespeare Festival. It was performed on a five-sixths-sized replica of the Globe Theatre. The festival is now performed on the Globe Stage, the most accurate Globe Theatre replica in the United States. [13]

With the approval of the New York State Board of Regents, Hofstra became Long Island's first private university on March 1, 1963. Also in that year, the Board of Trustees resolved to make Hofstra architecturally barrier-free for individuals with physical disabilities, stating that all students should have access to higher education. This later became federal law, and Hofstra was subsequently recognized as a pioneer. Other forward-thinking programs and events followed, including the New Opportunities at Hofstra (NOAH) program, which was established the following year. NOAH is Hofstra's Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program.

In 1963, Mitchel Air Force Base was closed by the military and declared surplus property. The university asked for part of the area to be used for educational purposes, and was subsequently granted 110 acres (0.45 km 2 ). Remnants of the concrete runways from the Air Force base are now parking lots for Hofstra's North Campus. The Hofstra University Museum was also established that year.

In 1968, a three-bank Aeolian pipe organ was donated to Hofstra by John T. Ricks and Jane Ricks King, in the name of their late parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Ricks. [14] The organ was originally located in the former Ricks estate, Chanticlare, in Flower Hill, New York. [14] Jesse Ricks was the former president and chairman of Union Carbide, and Mrs. Ricks was a volunteer church organist who often held organ performances at the estate for friends on Sundays. [14] [15] The organ was scheduled to be installed in the Hofstra Playhouse the following fall, and enabled organ music majors at Hofstra to practice on-campus - as opposed to at the nearby Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation. [14]

Hofstra Stadium served as the site of the first-ever NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship game in 1971. [16]

The university reorganized its divisions into “schools” in the 1960s. Hofstra was authorized by the Board of Regents to offer its first doctoral degrees in 1966. In 1968, the Hofstra Stadium became the first to install Astroturf outdoors in the East, and the New York Jets began holding their summer training camp to the North Campus, until 2008, when the Jets moved to Florham Park, New Jersey.

The Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary at Hofstra University has a collection of diverse trees and reflecting its Dutch origin, and displays an array of rare and colorful tulips in the Spring. [17]

There are 3,381 faculty members (including more than 2,200 in the school of medicine system), [18] 6,913 undergraduates, with a total of 11,240 students overall, including all full- and part-time undergraduates, graduates, law and medical students.

The campus has approximately 117 buildings on 244 acres (99 ha). [19] The part of the campus located south of Hempstead Turnpike (NY Route 24) and west of California Avenue is located in the Village of Hempstead. The part of the campus north of Hempstead Turnpike and east of California Avenue is located in Uniondale and East Garden City. Hofstra also offers an MBA program as well as other classes in New York City from a center in Manhattan. [20] [21] The campus is roughly 7 miles (11 km) from the Borough of Queens in New York City, and you can see the entire New York City skyline from the 10th floor of the library. [22] [23]

Rankings and reputation Edit

Hofstra University is accredited in 28 academic areas and 32 total areas. [31] Hofstra University offers 160 undergraduate and 170 graduate program options. [19]

Hofstra was ranked tied for 160th among national universities and named the 92nd 'best value school' by U.S. News & World Report for 2020, with its undergraduate engineering program ranked tied for 33rd among schools where doctorates are not offered. [32] U.S. News also rated the part-time MBA program tied for 154th and the graduate programs in education as 133rd, among others. [33]

The Hofstra University Honors College, whose admissions policy is more selective than that of the university as a whole, [34] offers rigorous educational opportunities for high-achieving students. The School for University Studies provides a program for students whose abilities are not reflected in standardized test scores while New Opportunities at Hofstra (NOAH) is designed for students whose educational progress to date has been restricted by limited educational opportunities or economic status.

In the fall of 2011, the university welcomed the first class of students in its new Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. In 2012, it established its School of Engineering and Applied Science, featuring programs that partner with regional industry leaders, [35] and its School of Health Sciences and Human Services, housing a new master of public health program. [36] In August 2017, after a $61 million donation to the school, it was renamed the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. [37]

The Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell was ranked #55 in primary care and #71 in research, according to U.S. News & World Report, despite only being 2 years since its first class graduated. [38]

Hofstra University hosted the third and final 2008 presidential debate (between Barack Obama and John McCain) on October 15, 2008. The debate, the first presidential debate in New York since the 1960 debate between John F. Kennedy and then Vice-President Richard M. Nixon, focused on economic policy and domestic issues. It is remembered for McCain's introduction and frequent references to "Joe the Plumber".

Hofstra's successful bid to host this presidential debate in 2008 provided the springboard for a broad, campus-wide program called "Educate '08," featuring a year of free lectures, conferences and other events about politics and public policy. The program featured national media and political figures as guest speakers, including George Stephanopoulos, Maureen Dowd, Ari Fleischer, James Carville and Mary Matalin. "Educate '08" gave way to "Define '09", a program which brought to campus various speakers to examine the impact of the historic election of the nation's first African-American president and the policy challenges facing the Obama Administration.

In September 2009, Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz announced the appointment of two senior presidential fellows at the university's Peter S. Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency: Republican strategist and former presidential advisor Edward J. Rollins and former Vermont governor, presidential candidate and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. In October 2011, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced it had chosen Hofstra for its second 2012 presidential debate on October 16, 2012, the "town hall" debate (between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney). [39] Hofstra University hosted the first 2016 presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on September 26, 2016. [40]

Hofstra University teams had the unofficial nickname of the Flying Dutchmen. [5] The school's official team name became "The Pride" in 2004, referring to a pair of lions which became the school's athletic mascots in the late 1980s. The Pride nickname evolved from the Hofstra Pride on- and off-campus image campaign that began in 1987, during the university's dramatic recovery and growth. This followed a financial crisis in the 1970s that forced the layoff of more than 100 employees. In 1977 Hofstra wrestler Nick Gallo won the 126 lb weight class at the NCAA National Championship and was a member of the 1976 and 1980 U.S. Olympic Freestyle Wrestling teams, he was also given the title "Most Outstanding Wrestler" in the 1977 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. [31] The school's revival was credited in large part to the man who led the university from 1976 to 2001—educator, government official and former Hofstra football star Dr. James M. Shuart. Hofstra Stadium, the school's main outdoor athletic facility, has been named James M. Shuart Stadium since 2002.

Prior to 2008, the New York Jets held summer training camp at their on-campus headquarters before moving to their new headquarters in Florham Park, New Jersey. The area has since been used for the construction of the medical school building, which was completed in 2015. [43]

On December 3, 2009, the university announced it was terminating the football program. Under NCAA rules, any football players who chose to transfer to other schools were eligible to play immediately, and not subjected to normal residency waiting periods. Scholarship-holders who wished to stay at Hofstra were permitted to keep their scholarships. [44] Funds previously used for the football program went into the creation of the medical school, and enhancing a variety of programs, including hard sciences and engineering. [45]

Hofstra Stadium is home to the New York Lizards, a professional lacrosse team in the Major League Lacrosse (MLL).

On February 26, 2011, Hofstra Senior Day, the university retired the basketball jersey number 22 to honor senior Charles Jenkins before the end of the season. Jenkins, the school's all-time leading scorer, ranked fifth in the nation at 23.3 points per game last season (as of 22 February 2011 [update] ) and was the front-runner to win Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year honors. "I think it's very rare," head coach Mo Cassara said by phone to reporter Jeff Eisenberg. "We have 25 other athletes that have had their numbers retired here at Hofstra, but none of them have ever been retired while they were still here at their last games. He's been such an integral part of this university on so many levels that we thought that was the highest honor we could give him." No other Hofstra athlete in any sport has received the same honor. [46]

The Hofstra University Pride Wrestling team competes in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association, as wrestling is not supported by the Colonial Athletic Association.

Student newspaper Edit

The Hofstra Chronicle is the only student newspaper at Hofstra University. Established in 1935 and supported by the student activity fee and advertising, [47] it is published in tabloid format every Tuesday evening each semester, with additional content available online. [48]

Student radio station Edit

The university operates Long Island's oldest public radio station, WRHU-FM (88.7). The non-commercial station was founded in 1950 as WHCH, a campus-limited station, and received its broadcast license on June 9, 1959, using the call letters WVHC. The station became WRHU (for Radio Hofstra University) in 1983. WRHU currently serves as the radio home of the Long Island Nets and New York Islanders, producing over 675 NHL broadcasts since 2010. [49] It is the only student-run radio station to receive three Marconi Awards from the National Association of Broadcasters. [49] [50]

Historians use primary sources as evidence to support their historical arguments. They are aware that primary sources often reflect the interests and concerns of their creator or author so must be critically examined and evaluated. When using primary sources, see if you can determine:

  • author or creator?
  • date of publication (how close to the actual event)?
  • intended audience?
  • purpose of the source (to present facts, or point of view)?
  • does it contain unspoken assumptions?
  • anything about the author that may influence the validity or reliability of the source?
  • any biases?
  • how this source compares with others from the same period (are there inconsistencies or contradictions)?
  • if the original source was commissioned or funded by anyone with a particular viewpoint?

You may not be able to answer all these questions, but hopefully you can find enough to help you decide how reliable the source is and how you will use it.

Hofstra University Continues the Discussions from Black History Month

In the midst of a pandemic and civil unrest, students and faculty at Hofstra University participated in new ways to celebrate and educate during this year’s Black History Month. During the month of March, there are several events lined up to continue the discussions on anti-racism.

On Wednesday March 10th, The Center for “Race,” Culture and Social Justice will hold their second “In Conversation…” program of the semester. “In Conversation…” at the Center for “Race” is a featured program of roundtable discussions around everyday issues that involve race and social justice, and that directly impact the Hofstra community. This upcoming discussion will involve the Hofstra Black/ Hispanic Alumni Association, a program established in 1990 to support African American and Latino students through scholarships and mentoring programs.

“It is very important that students and faculty continue the discussions,” said Athelene Collins, the executive director of the Hofstra Cultural Center. “What the Cultural Center does is we inject the conversation, but it is up to the various departments and clubs to continue the discussion.”

Several faculty members have held their own events within their department of knowledge to educate on matters regarding civil unrest. A special panel discussion focused on the recent social media movement #BlackInTheIvory will take place on Thursday March 11th. The event, “How Black Lives Matter Came to the Academy,” will focus on the start of the hashtag and its role in amplifying the voices of Black academics. Similar to events held in February, both of these events will take place using the Zoom Webinar platform. Photo by Marco Allasio from Pexels On February 17, the Hofstra Cultural Center hosted a conversation on “How to be Antiracist” with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University and the founding director of the BU Center for Antiracist Research. The Zoom Webinar had an outstanding turnout, with a total of 577 reservations made prior, surpassing the initial capacity of 475. “Virtually that was a large audience, in person we have had larger,” said Collins. “We have put-on sold-out events in the playhouse that seats up to 1,100 people.”

Had the event been in person, it most likely would have had an even larger audience however, an advantage in holding events virtually is the increase in the event’s reach to people outside of the local Hofstra community.

“Participating in the chat was a Hofstra Alumni from North Carolina,” said Colin Sullivan, the director of communications for Student Affairs. The event not only allowed far away alumni to attend, but was also accessible for students that are not on campus due to the pandemic. “The virtual programming does give us a much wider net to cast for people to be engaged,” said Sullivan. “In the future, I imagine a world where that event would’ve been in the student center theater and broadcast.”

Many student leaders took part in the discussion as well and held their own virtual events. On February 26th Hofstra University’s medical fraternity Phi Delta Epsilon cohosted a panel discussion with the NAACP chapter. This panel featured professors and medical students to discuss the topic “How Black Culture is Affected by Disproportionate Health Outcomes.”

“I think it really furthered the conversation about health and medicine in the black community and what we must do in order to prevent further disparities,” said Juliet Isles, a senior pre-med biology major and the president of Phi Delta Epsilon. “I would love to have more panels on this topic and continue hosting events with other organizations on these topics.” Photo Redrecords from Pexels

Many students also turn to social media to share educational posts with their peers regarding civil unrest, but this can unintentionally lead to performative activism, “a pejorative term referring to activism done to increase one's social capital rather than because of one's devotion to a cause.”

According to a survey conducted by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape, in May 2020 when the Black Lives Matter movement was at its peak on social media, the percentage of white Americans who acknowledged racism and police brutality rose, but in June they reverted to their previous levels. The activism on social media created an outpour of support, but it was not sustainable.

“I call it talking the talk and not walking the walk,” said Laramie Knox, a junior mass media major and the diversity and inclusion chair for Delta Phi Epsilon. “It’s always surface level information being shared, and not taking the initiative to find modern information.” Knox said that the best way of avoiding performative activism is to direct people to the events being held by student organizations or campus offices, instead of rehashing old information.

Student organizations also have access to diversity training on campus, and for many it is required. “I would hope that with the educational opportunities that Hofstra provides for our student leaders, those who are looking to be activists or allies would be from the right place and action driven,” said Sullivan. “We try to empower students to move beyond that space.” Photo by Cooper Baumgartner from Unsplash Most members of the Hofstra faculty and student body agree that these educational events should take place beyond Black History Month and are still doing their part to continue the discussions on anti-racism. Sullivan said “We see this during Black History Month, we see this during Pride month (…) to celebrate it for a month and forget about it. This work needs to be done 365 days a year.“

Using 21st century technologies to transcend political boundaries and reassert Southeastern Europe's status as cultural crossroads and de facto capital of the later Roman Empire.

To the Romans, the area today comprising the territories of Bosnia and Herzgovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macendonia, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia was much more than a marginalized provincial territory or a buffer against barbarian peoples. Home to five excavated imperial residences, numerous way-points along a sensitive frontier, notable attestations of early Christian life and culture, and birthplace of no fewer than seventeen emperors, the region's significance in the Roman imperial period is undeniable.

And yet, the region's story remains largely absent from traditional narratives of Roman history.

In an effort to revise this narrative, SEEDD is using cutting-edge methods including Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 3D modeling, and state-of-the-art databasing technologies to integrate and expand access to archaeological information from self-contained sites across the region. Transcending modern political boundaries that have obstructed such conclusions, this project for the first time asserts the importance of the region as a de facto capital of the Roman Empire and a vibrant, if unacknowledged, cultural crossroads in Late Antiquity.

With some creativity and advanced planning, remote modalities can actually offer important silver linings to the art historical instructor. In particular, a well-designed, intentional rethinking of the classic formal analysis exercise has the potential to facilitate the inclusivity that we as instructors strive to foster.

Fútbol, or soccer as it is called in the United States, is the most popular sport in the world. Millions of people schedule their lives and build identities around it. The World Cup tournament, played every four years, draws an audience of more than a billion people and provides a global platform for displays of athletic prowess, nationalist rhetoric, and commercial advertising. Fútbol is ubiquitous in Latin America, yet few academic histories of the sport exist, and even fewer focus on its relevance to politics in the region. To fill that gap, this book uses amateur fútbol clubs in Chile to understand the history of civic associations, popular culture, and politics.

In Citizens and Sportsmen, Brenda Elsey argues that fútbol clubs integrated working-class men into urban politics, connected them to parties, and served as venues of political critique. In this way, they contributed to the democratization of the public sphere. Elsey shows how club members debated ideas about class, ethnic, and gender identities, and also how their belief in the uniquely democratic nature of Chile energized state institutions even as it led members to criticize those very institutions. Furthermore, she reveals how fútbol clubs created rituals, narratives, and symbols that legitimated workers' claims to political subjectivity. Her case study demonstrates that the relationship between formal and informal politics is essential to fostering civic engagement and supporting democratic practices.

Established in 2008, the Zucker School of medicine was founded by two equal partners: Hofstra University and Northwell Health. The Zucker School of Medicine is built upon the strong clinical and graduate medical education programs of Northwell, as well as the robust research and academic programs of both Hofstra University and Northwell’s Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, including a partnership with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The Zucker School of Medicine currently ranks among top medical schools nationwide for research (U.S. News & World Report, Best Graduate Schools, 2019).   A brief history of the School's development is included below.
