We stand together as “One Adelphi” in support of all members of our community.

Know Your Rights

The Division of Student Affairs works tirelessly with students and campus colleagues to create a supportive student environment where Adelphi students can grow, develop and expand their perspectives. We are committed to a personalized approach to support for our students, even as we recognize that each student’s needs are different.

Joseph De Gearo, associate dean of student affairs, is available to meet with students privately to answer questions about DACA, immigration status or international visas, and to set up personalized support plans. Students can contact Dean De Gearo by calling 516.877.3654 or send an email to degearo@adelphi.edu to make an appointment.

Students can also visit Dean De Gearo in during open office hours on Thursdays from 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. in the Nexus Building, Room 302 to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns.
