Taking Hands-On Learning to a New Level

Profound learning experiences are a hallmark of an Adelphi education. Last semester, nine students in our unique mural arts workshop dove into the craft and business of creating public art. In the end, they acquired valuable tools for life after Adelphi while our iconic Swirbul Library gained a masterpiece.
$6M Grant Expands Clinic's Impact
The Derner Hempstead Child Clinic has provided psychotherapy services to local children, teens and families since 2015. Now, a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant will expand what we can bring to Hempstead's students.
How One Faculty Member Builds Confidence in Students
Brilliantly personalizing her teaching methods, Traci Levy, PhD, helps her political science students overcome presentation anxiety in group settings. She shared her approach and its great results in Inside Higher Ed.
Serving All Ages, Cultures and Backgrounds
Adelphi’s communication sciences and disorders program provides a broad range of treatment, care and support to people of myriad linguistic backgrounds—from toddlers to seniors. We are privileged to work with diverse communities across Long Island. 
Three New Adelphi Trustees
Three inspiring alumni have joined the Adelphi University Board of Trustees, bringing a wealth of international experience and business success. We are delighted to introduce them.
Adelphi is making local, national and global news:

  • In Newsweek, Katie Laatikainen, PhD, professor and acting chair of political science, weighs in on Russia's influence on Finland seeking NATO membership.
  • In a podcast from The Guardian, Paul Thaler, PhD, communications professor and a noted expert on cameras in the courtroom, discusses the issue in light of the Depp-Heard trial followed by millions worldwide.
  • Jonathan Ivanoff, associate director for internships, discusses the increase in summer internships in a Newsday feature.
  • In a letter published in Financial Times, Mariano Torras, PhD, professor and chair of finance and economics, responds to the article, “Talk of doing good things rings hollow at Davos.”

“I truly believe more institutions need to recognize the importance of supporting neurodiverse students, ... who deserve to have the opportunity to enhance their education and be contributing members of society.”
—Diana Damilatis-Kull ’10, MA ’12, MA ’14, director of Bridges to Adelphi and adjunct psychology faculty member, in a story about why neurodiversity belongs in colleges and universities in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education
