In March 2023, Alumni Relations embarked on a journey to learn more about our alumni’s experiences at the University and beyond. To carry out this endeavor, Adelphi collaborated with higher education market research firm PEG Ltd. to execute the Alumni Attitude Study.

Conducted confidentially and online over a period of three months, the survey was delivered to more than 48,000 alumni, with 3 percent of them actively responding and providing valuable perspectives. These respondents, alumni from the 1960s to the 2020s, earned undergraduate or graduate degrees, or both, across Adelphi’s diverse academic disciplines.

The survey feedback will be instrumental in helping the entire University enhance support for our alumni community–including new benefits, enhanced communications and exceptional programming and networking opportunities.

If you did not receive the survey, please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact information by completing our class notes form.
