Congratulations to Our 2022 Fulbright Scholars

A rising senior conducting research on retinal imaging; a trilingual future speech-language pathologist; and a doctoral student who brought social work to an orphanage in Kenya—our three Fulbright Scholars share their stories.
$4.2M Grant to Help Local Students
Adelphi’s long-running partnership with a school district in a neighboring community has led to a federal grant to create innovative summer and after-school programs designed to meet the needs of students and their families. Two Adelphi faculty members are leading this high-impact five-year effort.
Academic Conference Our Largest Yet
Undergraduate and graduate students presented STEM and liberal arts research, music and dance performances, original literature, and computer science and gaming demonstrations at our 17th annual Scholarship and Creative Works Conference. It is always a uniquely empowering Adelphi experience.
Building a Skilled Behavioral Health Workforce
A year ago, Adelphi received a $1.92 million Interdisciplinary Education and Training Experience (IDEATE) grant. Through our partnerships with premier healthcare institutions, our nursing and social work students work together to help underrepresented children. Read what we’ve accomplished, and how children’s lives were changed. 
Adelphi is making local, national and global news:

  • Scientific American recently interviewed Adelphi biology professor Matthias Foellmer, PhD, about a fascinating new study on sexual cannibalism in some spider species. The story has also appeared in other international outlets, including German magazine Spektrum der Wissenschaft.
  • CBS News New York featured Adelphi's Assistant Vice President and Chief Enrollment Officer Shawana Singletary in its “college decision day” story.
  • PIX11 News showcased Adelphi's efforts on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, when we collected more than 100 pounds of prescription medications for safe disposal.

“Society demands that we are strong ... as people of color in general. So when society says you cannot burst at the seams, that then signifies that we have no other area where we can be our authentic selves.”
—Schanica Pickens, assistant dean of student affairs in the School of Social Work, was interviewed for a NY1 News conversation following Adelphi's recent conference on Black men's mental health and wellness.
