A Message from the Vice President of Student Affairs

Hello fellow Panthers!

As Adelphi’s new vice president of Student Affairs, it’s important to me that we get to know each other—the Division of Student Affairs is all about building a relationship that will allow you to fully enjoy a successful journey at Adelphi.

Many factors contribute to a world-class higher education experience—stimulating academics, a positive residential experience, well-rounded opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities, exceptional career preparation, and excellent support.  The numerous student life offices that comprise the Division of Student Affairs are here to support you in each of these areas and more, while working with the University’s executive and academic leadership to ensure that your campus life and studies are inspiring and meaningful.

I look forward to uniting my vision for global and multicultural understanding with Adelphi’s inspiring commitment to diversity and inclusion—helping to foster an environment where all students feel welcomed, valued and supported.

Consider me your ambassador and advocate in creating a personally fulfilling university experience. I look forward to working in partnership with you to create amazing Adelphi memories.
