Leaping Into History: Dance at Adelphi

Internationally renowned dancer Ruth St. Denis founded the Department of Dance at Adelphi in 1938, one of the first dance departments at an American university. Now a cornerstone of our performing arts, it has close ties with the Paul Taylor and Martha Graham Dance Companies.
Breakthroughs in Neurodiversity

Our commitment to equity and academic opportunities for all students shines through Adelphi’s Learning Resource Program—the first of its kind on a college campus—and our Bridges to Adelphi Program, for students on the spectrum.
Nurses as Scholars: Introducing the Nurse PhD

Adelphi was the first university on Long Island to offer a PhD in Nursing. Today, our nurse PhD candidates are involved in the highest levels of leadership, research and educating the nurses of tomorrow.
Powering Up Scientific Computing

Here in New York, too few science students were trained to write the custom code required for high-level research. Adelphi answered the need by creating the first minor in scientific computing in New York state, in partnership with Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Adelphi is making local, national and global news. Here are some recent media highlights:

  • A Sunday New York Times feature about post-pandemic “empty nests” features insights from Kari Tabag, MSW ’97, adjunct faculty member in Adelphi's School of Social Work.
  • Real Clear Policy featured an op-ed from Traci Levy, PhD, associate professor of political science, and Elizabeth Palley, PhD, professor of social work, about including child care and elder care in national infrastructure proposals.
  • Nursing student Elaina Johnson is profiled in a Nurses Week section of the New York Post.
  • In a special issue of The Chronicle of Higher EducationJosh Altman, PhD, associate director of the Student Counseling Center, offered commentary on the future of therapy after the pandemic.

“Opportunities for major overhauls in higher education don't happen very often... We all need to move past strategies for teaching during the pandemic—and start rethinking how to succeed in the post-pandemic classroom.”
Matthew Wright, PhD, associate professor and chair of the Department of Physics, in an Inside Higher Ed op-ed, "Five Things We Must Do Better When This Thing Is Over."
