Office of Government & Community Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Government and Community Relations at St. Francis College

This office promotes civic engagement in local, state, and national government, as well as the Brooklyn and greater NYC communities. We also oversee community and campus partnerships, as well as community outreach efforts. Government relations at SFC advocates on behalf of the campus community for all aspects of SFC’s public-service, Franciscan and educational missions on matters of importance at the federal, state, and city levels. Community Relations at SFC is the primary way for local community members and civic organizations to access the wide array of resources offered by the College.
