Building World-Class Academics

In six years, Adelphi launched 52 new academic programs, including eight majors, 18 minors, 15 4+1 cost-saving degree programs, and three joint degree pathway programs. More innovative and in-demand opportunities are also rising from our new Innovation Center, expanded access to learning and the new ways that we advance faculty leadership.
Driving Student Success

We are now nationally honored for our programs in mentoring and career preparation and readiness. To broaden access to Adelphi’s world-class education, we increased critical financial assistance and support. And we have transformed our student life experience with improvements in living, dining and gathering.
Modeling Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Since our strategic plan began in 2015, our commitment to eliminate bias and promote respect and equity is driving important change in our community and beyond. Inclusion among our leadership, staff, faculty and students is at historic highs, strengthening our mission and making Adelphi a more welcoming place for all.
Connecting With Community

We’ve reenergized lifelong connections with our own inspiring and accomplished alumni. Our powerful partnerships with our critical partners in the community, at nonprofits and in government further support our mission. We continue contributing meaningfully on Long Island, in New York and to the world—as recognized by our prestigious 2020 Carnegie Community Engagement Classification.
Excelling in Finance and Operations

Adelphi has never been stronger operationally, thanks to our Momentum strategies to ensure fiscal responsibility, grow fundraising opportunities, win the faith of generous donors, and earn critical support from government and private foundations. Despite the pandemic’s challenges, global ratings expert Standard & Poor's reaffirmed our strong ratings. 
Rising in Reputation

Adelphi’s appearance in local, national and international media has doubled. Our faculty and administrators are established thought leaders in well-known news and higher education publications. In the past three years, U.S. News & World Report has named Adelphi a Best College and a Top Performer on Social Mobility, among other outstanding honors.
On November 30, a day of global generosity, please remember Adelphi University and help support the vital work we are doing in academics, student support, equity and community. Give then, or donate today. Thank you!
Adelphi is making local, national and global news:
  • In The New York Times, Deborah Serani, PsyD, senior adjunct faculty member in psychology, explains why Breast Cancer Awareness Month can be a traumatic reminder for survivors.
  • In an Inside Higher Ed op-ed, Joanna Templeton, lead editor and senior director of content, shares why Adelphi has an inclusive language guide—and why it is important for other colleges and universities to have one, too.
  • In Gizmodo, Kathryn Krasinski, PhD, assistant professor of anthropology, comments on new evidence of early humans' migration into North America.

“The U.S. needs to provide an array of options for high-quality child care—from publicly subsidized center-based care with well-educated instructors to home-based options. In both cases, carers should receive ongoing training and a living wage."
—Elizabeth Palley, JD, PhD, professor of social work, in a story in The 19th, “Seeking more ways to reduce crime, officials look to universal pre-K"
