About the Office of Government Relations
The Department of Government Relations is responsible for managing Seton Hall's relationship with local, state and federal government. The office works closely with Seton Hall administrators and faculty to ensure the University is completely prepared for issues and opportunities as they arise. Its primary responsibilities are to:
- Secure federal and state appropriations
- Regularly monitor local, state and federal legislation. Provide regular updates and discuss with the appropriate university administrator, deans and faculty. Include their feedback and use it to actively respond in order to mitigate the impact of negative legislation and strengthen the benefits of support legislation.
- Involve internal and external constituencies with events and share news about the University's technological and academic achievements.
