Support the School of Diplomacy and International Relations

In this era of widespread war, pandemic disease, disregard for human life, and increasing destruction from natural disasters caused by climate change, it is more important than ever before that we prepare the next generation of leaders to ensure a more sustainable future for our children. Our students come to the School of Diplomacy driven to serve the needs of the global community. Help us to hone the skills and provide the opportunities our students will need to meet these challenges and to make a difference.

A school is defined by the character of its community. At Seton Hall, we are dedicated to developing lifelong relationships with our alumni, students, and friends. Our mission, producing servant leaders in a global society, is evident not only in the contributions we make to our community, described on the pages of the School’s website, but also in the accomplishments of our alumni and friends and the support they give to the school in turn. Your time, talents, and treasure mean so much to our students, to the School and to our global community. Please join us in educating the next generation of global servant leaders. There are many ways to get involved. We are happy to customize an opportunity for your specific skills, talents and interests. We invite you to contact Elizabeth Halpin, Associate Dean of External Affairs, for more information: (973) 275-2560 or
