Leadership in Accessibility

Adelphi is known for helping each student find their own unique path. Alumna and Adelphi University Trustee Emily Ladau ’13 became a disability advocate, speaker, author of the forthcoming book Demystifying Disability, and a warrior for inclusion and justice. We’re proud to be involved in her important work.
Policies That Support Student Success

Adelphi continues to set the pace for student success. Our new policy decision removes the minimum GPA requirement for retaining academic scholarships—a step in support of equity and the mental health of students who rely on this important financial support.
Another Newman Civic Fellow

Social justice and student leadership are strong ideals at Adelphi, producing four Newman Civic Fellows in as many years. Our 2021 advocate for a better world is Newman Fellow Miguel Velasquez.
Welcoming Nontraditional Learners

Opening the doors of college education to nontraditional students is an important initiative at Adelphi. More than 60 continuing education workshops will help them advance their professional skills, and we offer them affordability and easy online access.
