This fall, Adelphi welcomed a new set of dedicated, diverse and knowledgeable faculty members.

“I’m delighted that Adelphi University welcomed 21 new faculty members to its ranks this fall,” said Christopher Storm, PhD, provost and executive vice president. “The faculty of Adelphi have a primary role to play in teaching and in generating new knowledge. They will carry forward our current offerings and be a source for intellectual growth as we shape the educational offerings of the future. This particular complement of faculty includes appointments in a diversity of disciplines, and many of our new scholars have research interests that challenge existing disciplinary conceptions.”
