More than 150 members of the Derner community gathered for a special evening.

On April 29, 2012, more than 150 members of the Derner community gathered for a special evening celebrating Professor Patrick L. Ross and his 45 years of teaching at Adelphi. The event, which was spearheaded by the Derner Advisory Council, was a tremendous success, drawing students, faculty and alumni to Chelsea Piers’ Sunset Terrace in New York City for the evening’s festivities.

There was much to celebrate, including the announcement that the Patrick L. Ross Fellowship Fund had attracted more than $176,000 in donations from Derner alumni, students, faculty and friends. The fund, which will provide financial assistance to incoming doctoral students, was established in 2012 to honor Dr. Ross, who is retiring at the end of this academic year. It continues to grow through the Derner community’s generous support.

You can see photos from the evening in Adelphi’s photo gallery. If you are interested in contributing to the Patrick L. Ross Fellowship Fund, you can make your gift easily and securely today. For more information, contact Erin Gayron at 516.877.3475 or
