Equity in College Readiness

Now in its third year, our Hispanic Community Partnership Program has more than tripled in attendance and is drawing interest from Hispanic teens as far away as California. The program is just one part of our commitment to student success and access to education, and a significant stepping-stone toward our goal to be a Hispanic-Serving Institution.
Our Athletes Lead

Despite grueling schedules, our scholar-athletes continue to lead academically among all Northeast-10 institutions. Finishing first in Fall 2020, they've taken the top spot in eight of the past 11 semesters—winning in their sports and their studies.

Celebrating 125 Years: Watch Building Tomorrow Together

Adelphi College opened its doors 125 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, with 57 students. Now we celebrate a milestone birthday as a major metropolitan university with almost 8,000 students and more than 118,000 living alumni around the world. Witness our successful journey in pictures.
Adelphi is making local, national and global news:

  • A CNN story on mindfulness featured Deborah Serani, PsyD, senior adjunct faculty member in psychology, sharing her "5 ways to free yourself" from overthinking.
  • In Scientific American, Michael D’Emic, PhD, paleontologist and associate professor of biology, shares his thoughts on unscrambling dinosaur bones.
  • On News 12, Lea Theodore, PhD, professor of psychology, shared her expertise during a live segment on the pandemic’s toll on children’s mental health.
  • Adelphi student and admissions ambassador Sarah Menzel gave viewers a campus tour in a Newsday feature video.

“What I would love for people to be reassured about is that there have been lots of times in history when things haven’t gone the way we’ve expected them to. We adapt, and our children will have skills and strengths and resiliencies that we didn’t have.”
Joaniko Kohchi, director of Adelphi University’s Institute for Parenting, in the Associated Press article "Polio: When vaccines and re-emergence were just as daunting" that ran in The Washington Post, ABCnews.com, U.S. News & World Report, and more than 400 other news outlets nationwide.
