125th Year in Review: Annual President’s Report

My 2020–2021 President’s Report explores a year of milestones, reflection and forward-thinking in Adelphi’s 125th anniversary year. We had exceptional outcomes across six goals, while successfully navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. Read how our community continues to lead and innovate.
What Is Leadership? A Q&A With Board Vice Chair Carmen Ortiz

The first woman and the first Hispanic person to serve as U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Carmen Ortiz ’78, JD, ’12 (Hon.), is also vice chair of the Adelphi University Board of Trustees. Here, she discusses her remarkable career, vision of leadership, and how our University inspires our students.
A $1M Bequest From a Nursing Trailblazer

Adelphi recently received a $1 million gift from our trailblazing nurse alumna, the late Mildred “Millie” Loughlin Kahane ’49. She was a first-generation scholarship recipient who became a leader—one inspired to “pay it forward.” The next generation of Adelphi nurses and our University are grateful for her generosity.
Young Leaders Are Born Here

Adelphi nurtures leadership in our students. Some earn the President’s Student Leadership Award, become Levermore Global Scholars or compete in our Willumstad Leadership Scholars Program. Others shine in our local high school. We’re proud to recognize and celebrate them all.
