Diversity in the Honors College
Sapere aude — meaning “dare to know” — is our motto.
Daring to know means celebrating the intellectual bravery in a diverse community of highly curious and motivated students and professors. The Honors College prides itself on its efforts to create an environment in which these students will feel recognized and supported in their endeavors to take the academic risks that lead to excellence. Our vibrant community generates a culture of intellectual curiosity among its members and prepares students to become confident and vocal contributors to the futures they create. In the Honors College, we believe that true knowledge and personal growth comes through bold conversations and collaborations between individuals from a diverse range of identities, histories, and experiences.
We have re-imagined our admissions process, curriculum, and co-curricular extracurricular offerings to invite a more intimate and responsive academic environment. As the home of those who dare to know, the Honors College is committed to providing an educational experience that matches our students’ courage and curiosities.
Honors College Diversity Council
The Honors College Diversity Council meets bi-weekly during the fall and spring semesters.
DACA, Immigration and International Support
Ongoing guidance and support about current and emerging immigration issues for our students.
The Multicultural Center supports Adelphi’s diverse community of students, campus engagement, and multicultural and global experiences. It is a place of learning, a hub for cultural activities, and a place where all students—especially BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, international and first-generation students—can feel at home.
Multicultural Clubs and Organizations
We offer our students multicultural clubs and organizations for community and support, including historically culturally-based fraternities, sororities, and social fellowships governed by the Multicultural Greek and Fellowship Council. Among these are Historical Black Greek letter organizations that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council and Divine Nine.
Faculty of Color Network
The University developed the Faculty of Color Network, a multiracial network that aims to fully engage faculty of color, particularly new ones, with the broader academic life of the campus.
Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center
Adelphi is one of only 24 institutions of higher education nationwide selected for this important program, which works toward the goal of erasing structural barriers to equal treatment and opportunity on campuses, in our communities, and for our nation around the pillars of the TRHT Framework: narrative change, racial healing and relationship building, separation, law, and economy.
