Diversity Statement

The College of Arts and Sciences at Adelphi University is a community of educators, learners and creators committed to advancing the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, global citizenship and sustainability. These principles enrich our community, promote meaningful relationships, enhance our experiences, allow us to prioritize care for those most vulnerable and improve the long-term well-being of all. This mission drives the College of Arts and Sciences to meaningfully engage and center members of communities that have been historically, institutionally and systemically silenced and oppressed. We further support and champion initiatives, activities, discussions and practices in scholarship, creative work, teaching and service at the University and in the broader community that apply, critique, challenge and improve upon these principles in praxis. We strive to create a more socially just institution, society and world.
