N

ow in its 75th year, Hofstra University provides a dynamic college experience tailored for engaged and ambitious individuals. Students find their edge at Hofstra, through small classes, a faculty whose primary concern is teaching, cutting edge technology, extensive library resources, internships, and special educational programs that appeal to their interests and abilities. The Hofstra community is driven, dynamic and energetic, helping students find and focus their strengths to prepare them for a successful future. In its relatively short history, Hofstra has established itself as a world-class institution of higher education and cultural enterprise. Each academic year, the Hofstra campus and the programs offered grow and change to meet the demands of our students and our community. Hofstra opened in 1935 as a commuter school with all classes and offices housed in one building. Since those early days, Hofstra has evolved into an international institution with a student body hailing from 47 states and territories, and 67 countries around the world. The beautiful campus is an accredited arboretum with 115 buildings on 240 acres. There are approximately 4,200 students living on campus, and Hofstra offers them and all students an extensive array of academic and social activities. Additionally, Hofstra’s close proximity to Manhattan means that students have easy access to the wondrous cultural, social and career offerings of the city. What has remained consistent throughout the years, however, is the sense of community on campus, the eagerness of our students to learn and the commitment of the Hofstra faculty and administration to provide a challenging education that

encourages the pursuit of lifelong learning. The Colleges and Schools of the University are: Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, New College for Interdisciplinary Studies, School of Communication, School of Education, Health and Human Services, School of Law, School for University Studies, Honors College, Hofstra University Continuing Education and Hofstra University School of Medicine in partnership with the North Shore-LIJ Health System. Bachelor’s degrees are offered in about 140 areas of study. Graduate degrees are offered, including Ph.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., Au.D., and J.D. degrees, advanced certificates and professional diplomas, in more approximately 150 programs of study. Hofstra joined with North Shore-LIJ Health System in announcing plans to establish a medical school on the University campus in October 2007. The new school, which will enroll its first students in 2011, will be the first allopathic (MD) medical school in Nassau County and the first in New York State since 1963. In October 2008 the eyes of the world were on Hofstra as the University hosted the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain. The October 15 debate, moderated by Bob Schieffer, was a transformational moment for the University, highlighting the achievements of our students and faculty and their engagement in the political process. Leading up to the debate, students and the entire community were engaged by the year-long Educate ’08 program, almost 150 lectures, conferences, and events focused on the issues, history and politics of the presidency. Hofstra has followed the Educate ’08 program with Define ’09, a year-long series of programs designed to examine the new presidential administration, its policies and initiatives, the challenges we currently face and ways of addressing our country’s most pressing issues. 2008 also saw Hofstra award its first Guru Nanak Interfaith Prize to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. The new international award, which recognizes efforts at interfaith dialogue, received 75 nominations for individuals and organizations from around the world. Hofstra’s School of Communication is one of the largest, most advanced non-commercial television facilities in the East. Students take classes and work in Dempster Hall, a sophisticated

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

J

ack Hayes is in his seventh year as director of athletics at Hofstra University in 2010-11. Hayes was appointed by Hofstra President Stuart Rabinowitz as the University’s director of athletics on October 4, 2004. Hayes came to Hofstra after serving as an associate director of athletics at the University of Connecticut for three years.   Hayes, the eighth director of athletics at Hofstra, leads a department that includes 17 Division I teams, 90 coaches and administrative staff members and 350 student-athletes. Hayes’ proven expertise in enhancing academic and athletic success of student-athletes, strategic planning, fund-raising, marketing, university relations, facility enhancement, budgetary management, and NCAA compliance complements Hofstra University’s athletic department in its quest to further enhance its athletic program, and assist Hofstra’s student-athletes both on and off the field. The Hofstra Athletic program has flourished under Hayes’ leadership, winning 19 CAA Championships and making 28 postseason appearances, including 21 NCAA Tournaments, since the 2004-05 academic year. In 2009-10 four Pride teams qualified for postseason play, while in 2008-09 the Pride wrestling team won the CAA Championship for an eighth consecutive year and the men’s lacrosse program advanced to the NCAA Tournament as an at-large selection. In addition, Hofstra hosted the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals in 2009, which saw nearly 12,000 people fill James M. Shuart Stadium for the event.

JACK HAYES Director of Athletics

Hayes has placed a significant emphasis on fund-raising during his tenure. Pride Club membership reached all-time highs, both in terms of the number of contributors and funds raised as the organization topped the $1 million mark for the third consecutive year in 200910. Resources generated through fund-raising efforts have been used to enhance programs and facilities available to student-athletes. Recent initiatives include the construction of baseball’s Quinn Family Grandstand and The Fried Family Student-Athlete Development Center on the second floor of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. Other recent renovations include locker rooms, the wrestling room, athletic training rooms in Margiotta Hall and the Physical Fitness Center, the basketball media room in the Mack Sports Complex, a press box at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium, replacement of the turf at James M. Shuart Stadium and the construction of the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium. In 2006 Hayes reintroduced the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame after more than a 50-year absence, inducting four classes since that time. He also led an effort to retire the uniform numbers of prominent Hofstra student-athletes with 20 jersey retirement ceremonies held during the 2008-09 academic year. Active on a national level, Hayes served on the NCAA Division I Lacrosse Committee from September 2006 to September 2008. In September 2010 he was appointed to the NCAA Leadership Council, which is an advisory body to the Division I Board of Directors.

ATHLETIC ACADEMIC SUPPORT

H

ofstra University is committed to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The University views participation in intercollegiate athletics as benefiting the student-athlete in an educationally enhancing experience beyond any other opportunity available. Hofstra also realizes the time commitment made by studentathletes and has committed the facilities and resources to support all students. The University Tutorial Program (UTP) provides free tutoring in every subject area to any Hofstra student. Students are able to obtain up to 1 1/2 hours of individual tutorial assistance per week for up to three courses. They are also able to utilize the various help labs on campus, which specialize in providing assistance in writing, business and QM, and biology and chemistry. In addition to this service, student-athletes are assigned an academic advisor, through the Center for University Advisement, who helps address the various needs of student‑athletes. The academic advisor emphasizes four areas in their efforts to ensure the academic success of Hofstra’s student-athletes.

Area four is study halls. The University Tutorial Program supports athletic study halls by providing tutors in various subjects as necessary. The academic advisors also assess the needs of individual student‑athletes to provide the most effective study environment. The assessment tool administered by the Center for University Advisement is also used to provide various enrichment seminars for the student‑athletes such as time management, writing skills, campus resources, and surviving the college transition. In 2010 The Fried Family StudentAthlete Development Center was opened on the second level of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. The center houses the offices of the Student-Athlete Services staff, as well as a large computer lab with printer access for use by Hofstra studentathletes, a quiet study area with wireless internet access and two group study/tutor rooms with power point access and white boards.

Area one is academic counseling. Services are provided in the areas of academic planning, career planning, personal counseling, and campus and community referrals. The advisor also meets with prospective student‑athletes, at the coach’s request, to share the many benefits of a Hofstra University education. Area two is academic advising. The academic advisor serves as the primary advisor for first-year and undecided student-athletes, and also assists upperclassmen who have declared a major. Area three is academic monitoring. The advisor monitors the academic progress of student‑athletes to ensure compliance with Hofstra University, NCAA and conference regulations. The advisor’s regular communication with the faculty and coaches provide opportunities for early intervention should academic difficulties arise.

T

hrough a comprehensive athletic training program, Hofstra University student-athletes are provided excellent health care during their attendance at the University. A coordinated effort between the University Health and Wellness Center, the Athletic Department and outside health care providers ensures every student-athlete the best medical attention possible. University student-athletes have direct access to a myriad of health care services. Managing the coverage of every practice and competition event is Hofstra University’s athletic training staff, which is led by seventh-year Head Athletic Trainer Evan Malings and features eight full-time athletic trainers and numerous student athletic trainers. The athletic trainers provide injury management, rehabilitation and treatment to the entire Athletic program. Utilizing three state-of-the-art athletic training rooms, these professionals work tirelessly to ensure the safe participation of Hofstra’s student-athletes and to return injured athletes to play quickly and safely. Supporting the athletic trainers is team physician Dr. Michael Yorio. Dr. Yorio, a physician with Pro Health Care, Inc. in Lake Success, New York, is in his first year on Hofstra’s medical team. Yorio is an internist with specialized training in sports medicine. He earned his undergraduate degree at Villanova University, and received his medical degree from the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse. Yorio previously served as a sports medicine fellow with the University of Maryland Orthopedics. Prior to that, he was a resident physician in internal medicine at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Yorio was named the Director of Player Medical Services for the 2008 U.S. Open Tennis Tournament in Flushing, New York, and is on the medical staff for the New York Islanders.  He also worked as a team physician for the University of Maryland from 2003 to 2005.

THE COLONIAL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

C

oming off the celebration of its 25th Anniversary in 2009-10, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically. The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 20 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2009-10 the CAA had more than 1,700 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes receive the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 28 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2010. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA currently sponsors 23 sports with the addition of a football league in 2007 and women’s rowing in 2009. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 200910, 20 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 32 student-athletes received AllAmerica honors. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with a leaguerecord six teams advancing to postseason play in 2009-10. Conference champion Old

2010-11 T e n n i s

Dominion made its third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last six years and knocked off Notre Dame in the first round. Northeastern and William and Mary received berths in the NIT. VCU posted five straight victories and captured the CBI championship. Hofstra also took part in the CBI and George Mason played in the CIT. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, knocking off powerhouses Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. The Patriots were ranked No. 8 in the final ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, which was the highest ever for a CAA team. A league-record seven CAA women’s basketball teams advanced to postseason play in 2009-10. James Madison represented the conference in the NCAA Tournament after capturing its first CAA championship since 1989. Delaware, Drexel, Hofstra, Old Dominion and VCU participated in the WNIT, with VCU advancing to the third round. Towson took part in the WBI. ODU, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. Three women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament in two of the past three seasons and at least one men’s soccer team has advanced to the final 16 of the NCAA Championship in five of the last eight years. In men’s cross country, William & Mary placed fifth nationally as a team in 2009 and had three runners earn All-America status. In the pool, George Mason’s Ashley Danner finished as the runner-up in the 100 breaststroke at the 2010 NCAA Championship and received All-America honors along with Towson’s Meredith Budner. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 13 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the last eight Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-

Americans in tennis, golf, track and field, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs already established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. In 2002, two faculty members from CAA institutions were awarded academia’s most coveted distinction – the Nobel Prize. John B. Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.
