The Hofstra community is saddened by the passing of Gregory Maney, PhD, the University’s Harry H. Wachtel Distinguished Professor for the Study of Nonviolent Social Change. He was a professor of sociology and director for active citizenship and off-campus partnerships at the Center for Civic Engagement. Professor Maney passed away on September 2, 2017, after a long battle with brain cancer. He had served on the Hofstra faculty since 2001.
“Greg Maney was a true artist, one who worked with hands, head, and heart to sculpt and bring life to each community he created or touched. He was a model of the scholar/teacher/activist who taught critical thought, nonviolence and caring in all aspects of life,” said Dr. Linda Longmire, Professor of Global Studies and Geography. “He knew how to speak truth to power, but he also knew how to empower the truth in each person. He was passionately, tirelessly committed to social justice and human rights, both in and for each person and in each institution. Though he is no longer with us, he will now dwell everywhere and always within the hearts of those who knew and loved him.”
