Frequently Asked Questions
We know you have questions about diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging at Adelphi University, and we’d like to help.
Diversity is needed to remain relevant to the students, faculty, and broader community we serve and to reflect the changing demographics of the population and the growing globalization of society. Diversity is an affirmation of the richness of human differences, ideas and beliefs. Advancing diversity in the context of higher education involves promoting a climate of intercultural awareness and respect, engaging the curriculum in a way that fosters appreciation for the depth and breadth of diverse thoughts and perspectives; and actively seeking a diverse student body, faculty, and staff at the University.
Members of the Diversity Committee can direct inquiries on diversity and discrimination to the appropriate offices and groups, including to such resources as the University’s Anti-Discrimination, Harassment (including Sexual Assault) and Retaliation Policy (see-Office of Human Resources website), or the Anti-Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Panel. You can contact the committee online using our simple form, or email us directly at AUdiversity@adelphi.edu.
