On Campus Pride Index, a perfect five stars out of five
Adelphi has achieved a perfect 5 stars out of 5 on the Campus Pride Index, which is an overall indicator of institutional commitment to LGBTQ-inclusive policy, program and practice.
Our team is here to help students of all backgrounds succeed in college and in their futures by offering opportunities, access and support—from before they arrive on campus until long after graduation.
