Our inaugural Celebration of Scholarly Research & Creative Works video introduces you to Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec, DMA, and his Grammy-nominated oratorio, Sanctuary Road. Meet our inspiring University Professor and watch for future interviews with Adelphi’s world-class researchers, creators and innovators.
Adelphi on Broadway and Netflix

We continue to lead in the performing arts community. Adelphi alumni are contributing to the Broadway show Pass Over by Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu and Disney’s Winnie the Pooh off-Broadway. And an early work of Jonathan Larson ’82, creator of the musical RENT, is heading to Netflix.
Raising Student Voices

Our students are fostering an environment of greater belonging and inclusion—at Adelphi and beyond. Our community recently launched three meaningful examples of student-centered initiatives: the Equitable Adelphi Action Team, the Indigenous Peoples Awareness Coalition (IPAC) and InQUEERies.
Time-Honored Traditions

Our motto, our mascot, our alma mater—these are just some of the time-honored traditions at Adelphi and our long history. We celebrate them all during our milestone anniversary year.
Adelphi is making local, national and global news:

  • In a CNN story, Katherine Fiori, PhD, psychology professor and chair, is quoted about how casual relationships benefit seniors. 
  • In The Chronicle of Higher Education, Stephanie Lake, PhD, senior lecturer and director of Adelphi’s criminal justice program, gives her perspective on “Could Political Rhetoric Turn to Campus Violence?”
  • A blog post in Psychology Today by Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology alumna Kirby Goldin, PhD ’17, examines “playing hard to get” while dating. 
  • InnovateLI featured our computer science and Bridges to Adelphi students who, while away from Adelphi’s campus during the pandemic, recreated it virtually on Minecraft, with guidance from mentor and adjunct faculty member Joseph Koehler ’18.

“People [on the autism spectrum] might find it sensorially overloading to go to a physical location that has maybe too much noise or some kind of lighting that’s problematic, such as fluorescent lights, recessed lighting fixtures, even just temperature control.”
Stephen Shore, EdD, clinical assistant professor of education at Adelphi University, in a story in EdSurge, underlining the importance of giving neurodivergent students more control over their learning environments
