Employee-Student Engagement and
As employees in the St. John’s University community, there are
countless ways that we can engage our students every day, from a
quick chat on the sidewalk to organized events and sponsored
activities, from sharing a meal in the dining hall to sharing a pew
at church. While the opportunities are endless, the choice is each
of ours. Any way we choose to connect with a student will make a
difference in how he or she experiences St. John’s. The key is to
make the connection, and to repeat it every chance we get.
Within the Mission and Vision of St. John’s University is the
unique “Vincentian” charism. St. Vincent de Paul, founder of the
Vincentian Fathers and the Daughters of Charity, created ministries
in seventeenth-century France designed to serve and advocate for
people who were poor and vulnerable. As an employee of St. John’s
University, you are encouraged to continue this great mission of
St. Vincent by integrating service to the poor into your
employment. While we affirm all efforts of service, particularly
those we render individually in our personal lives, we support and
encourage engagement in service under the University banner as part
of your employment.
To get you started, here are some ways employees can
engage students. Visit the links in the right sidebar to
see how you can get involved through service, mentoring,
spirituality, teaching, sports, charitable giving, social and
cultural activities, and academic and student events.

The Office of Media Relations is the only liaison between the
University and the news media: TV; radio; newspapers; magazines;
and any other news organizations. It is the only University office
authorized to speak on behalf of the University, its President,
Administration, Faculty and Staff.
If you should receive a phone call from someone identifying him
or herself as a reporter or a representative of a news
organization, the University requires that you refer the call to
the Office of Media Relations at 718-990-1621 (or ext. 1621). An
employee’s failure to abide by this policy may result in
disciplinary action by the University, up to and including
termination of employment.
