Founded in 2005, the Hagedorn Foundation's mission is to promote social equity on Long Island, NY. In the decade plus of the foundation's life it gave over $59 million in grants to 195 organizations in the areas of immigration reform, civic engagement and for family, children & youth. Under the leadership of the late Dr. Miriam Deitsch, FSC Distinguished Professor of Sociology, FSC was able to secure a Hagedorn Foundation grant to fund community engaged experiences focused on social justice for FSC students. At this event, the Nexus Center's OCCE awarded the Hagedorn Foundation Award to one student from each school in recognition of their commitment to community engaged social justice work. The event also served as a memorial for Dr. Miriam Deitch and her commendable contribution to Farmingdale State College.
