IMPACT—Stand Out

As the Lorax said in Dr. Seuss's book, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” To provide our students a competitive and distinctive edge, we organized a workshop on personal branding, in partnership with Hello Career Guru, featuring career development professionals. Titled “Creating One’s Own Personal Brand: The Passport to Professional and Career Success,” this follows up on a Fall 2020 workshop on how students can tell their personal stories, powerfully and persuasively.

This summer, we are launching our three-year baccalaureate degrees in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing, offering motivated and strong students an opportunity to graduate faster and enter the workforce sooner, while saving a year’s expense of tuition and living-on-campus costs—and, if they want, they can obtain a master’s degree in just one additional year. Students in this accelerated program will continue to access the vast array of high-impact programs—internships, study abroad, project learning, etc.—that define an Adelphi education.
ENGAGEMENT—New Paradigms

The pandemic has upended the world. Will we return to the ways we knew before once the virus has been neutralized? Our Elizabeth and Allen Don Center for Innovative Technology and Decision Sciences brought together professionals from several industries to discuss that topic in a session titled “The Digital Transformation of Business in the Post-Pandemic Era.” The panel featured Gaia Dempsey (Metaculus); Karam Kapur (Colgate-Palmolive); Jessica Kowalski (Amazon Web Services); Alexandru Oanca ’09, MBA ’10 (Salesforce); and Mark Schlesinger (Broadridge Financial Solutions). The discussion was facilitated by Gita Surie, PhD, professor of management and director of the Don Center. The program was sponsored by Ridgewood Savings Bank.
