2022 President's Gala

The 22nd Annual President’s Gala on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the Garden City Hotel was the culminating event of Adelphi’s milestone anniversary year. Together with friends, benefactors, students and alumni, the Adelphi community honored our University, students and all who have supported our mission to transform lives.

It was a memorable evening featuring musical performances by alumni, a gallery display of Adelphi history from University Archives and Special Collections, heartfelt tributes to our generous supporters, and inspiring stories of transformation.

The event raised more than $345,000 for the President’s Student Success Scholarship and paid special tribute to the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, which is celebrating the 65th anniversary of the accreditation of its doctoral program.

With our eyes on Adelphi’s future, we honor our history and continue our story. We’re building tomorrow, together.

Supporting Our Students

Net proceeds support the President’s Student Success Scholarship, which ensures juniors and seniors who are facing sudden financial hardship are able to complete their degrees. This endowment was established by President Christine Riordan in 2018 from the proceeds of that year’s President’s Gala—it helps to ensure that the Adelphi story continues for future generations of our students.

Like many students attending our University, Covid-19 has placed a tremendous strain on my family and me. Receiving this scholarship aid will act as a major financial relief for us.

Neuroscience major

I very much appreciate the generosity in helping me really accomplish my goals and dreams. Thank you.

Biology major

This scholarship will forever impact my life because it will always remind me to never give up and to keep going.

Nursing major

We are no longer hosting the event virtually due to the high demand for in-person attendance. Please contact Jackie Hertling at for more information and to request to receive the event recording.

President’s Gala in-person attendees will observe Adelphi’s health and safety guidelines.
