Your Adelphi experience is more than an academic journey.
Be Yourself Here
We value the richness in human differences. Our multifaceted programs will support your development as an ethical individual, empower you to appreciate diversity and help you become a global citizen.

You can choose from dozens of diverse clubs, activities, programs, service organizations and leadership opportunities—places where you can pursue your passions, become a leader, push for social justice, build your career potential, connect with others or forge lifelong friendships. Jump in. It’s part of being a Panther.
We are committed to creating an atmosphere of fun that encourages students to participate in many activities. In fulfilling our mission to “Have Fun and Be Active,” we aspire to be the best part of your day.
Student and Community Engagement
Getting involved at Adelphi starts here—at the Center for Student and Community Engagement (SCE), where the incredible variety of student organizations reflects the rich diversity of our student body. Whether you are looking to enrich your experience as a commuter or transfer student, a senior wanting to make the most of your final year, or a student who wants to volunteer to make a difference in the lives of others, SCE will help you connect.
Adelphi University is home to a growing number of Greek and social fellowship organizations. Our Greek community is committed to a tradition of academic excellence, community service, leadership, diversity and lifelong friendships. Students are encouraged to learn about each organization and participate in the recruitment processes, which are held during the fall and spring semesters.
The Interfaith Center is open to the entire Adelphi community, including students, faculty, administrators and staff members. The Center fosters the ecumenical spirit on campus, provides opportunities for worship and fellowship and encourages discussion of spiritual values and sharing of religious traditions.
A hallmark of an Adelphi education is the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and take a leadership role in our community. The Leadership Certificate Program offers Adelphi students opportunities to develop leadership and professional skills. You’ll attend workshops on a wide variety of topics to receive your certificate. This program helps you find your voice, build your résumé and empower others.
Multicultural Affairs seeks to promote an inclusive and socially just University environment. Through our Dinner and Dialogue Series, LGBTQIA+ opportunities and programs for diversity months, we provide activities and services that educate and empower students, faculty and staff, and we seek to explore the complex intersection of our social identities such as race, gender, sexual orientation, class and spiritual diversity.
Volunteering & Service
Volunteer at the Panther Pantry to help those with food insecurity. Restore public green spaces with the Break A Difference program. Create a garden during our Alternative Break. Help the elderly, assist the homeless, tutor children or donate your time to an animal shelter. Adelphi offers you so many ways to change lives for the better; it’s why Adelphi earned the 2020 Carnegie Foundation Community Engagement Classification for exceptional commitment to community service.
