Hofstra University is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational institution of higher learning located in the Village of Hempstead and the hamlet of Uniondale on Long Island, New York (USA). The university was founded in 1935 on the basis of the estate of wealthy lumber magnate William S. Hofstra (1861-1932) and his (second) wife Kate Mason (1854-1933). The school began as a college of New York University and in 1937 became an independent school called Hofstra College,[1] later changing its name to Hofstra University in 1963.
