Adelphi annually honores students, student organizations and faculty members who have made a commitment to pursue excellence in their various endeavors.

Each year, the Student Government Association (SGA) and Center for Student and Community Engagement recognize faculty, staff and undergraduate students for their dedication and accomplishments throughout the year at the Brown and Gold Awards Ceremony. This year, the SGA is accepting nominations for individual awards and highlights.
