The Adelphi campus is home to a diverse and welcoming community.

Adelphi is awarded for its efforts in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.

Adelphi University continues to receive national recognition for its commitment to equal opportunities and LGBTQIA+ community allyship. Both are priorities of the University’s Momentum 2 strategic plan to welcome students, faculty and staff members of all backgrounds, belief systems and individual expressions and to provide them with equal access to the opportunities and support they need to succeed at Adelphi and beyond.

Equal Opportunity Magazine ranks Adelphi among its Top 20 Universities for 2024, based on a survey of its readers to assess a university’s diversified curriculum and student base, and how faculty and staff foster a diverse and inclusive learning environment. The magazine, launched in 1968 as the first diversity career publication in the United States, is read by more than 100,000 members of minority groups who are students, entry-level employees and professionals in all career disciplines. Adelphi will be featured in its July 2024 issue.

Adelphi was also recognized as one of Her Campus’s 10 Queer-Friendly Colleges to Have on Your Radar. Her Campus, a leading media platform dedicated to empowering college women around the globe, gives Adelphi high rankings in “all things queer-friendly.” It praises the University’s “gender-inclusive housing and has many different on-campus resources, groups, programs, and organizations that are centered around the diversity and inclusion of queer students.”

It also notes Adelphi’s perfect five out of five-star rating from the Campus Pride Index, a national listing of LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities.

“We are very pleased to see the national recognition of our commitment to creating a University community that is inclusive for every member of our community to thrive in,” said R. Sentwali Bakari, PhD, Adelphi’s vice president for student affairs and diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. “These rankings reaffirm what the Adelphi experience truly means and are a great example of what our students can expect and the plentiful opportunities available to them.”
