Mission Statement

Our University transforms the lives of all students by creating a distinctive environment of intellectual rigor, research, creativity and deep community engagement across four core areas of focus:  arts and humanities, STEM and social sciences, the professions, and health and wellness.


We will become a nationally respected leader—a standard bearer—for redefining the practical and personal value of education for students, helping them define their success in the classroom, on campus, in careers and communities, and beyond.


We are guided by six core values that exemplify the type of community we seek to create:

  • Academic excellence
  • Community and collaboration
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Global awareness and diversity
  • Respect for the individual
  • Truth and integrity

The Strategic Plan for Adelphi University, 2022–2027

Momentum 2, or M2, was designed by the Adelphi community to continue advancing our mission for a new generation of higher education students. Our ambitious five-year strategy builds on the success of our previous Momentum plan and further extends Adelphi's proud legacy of transformation, innovation, and connection.
