Parents and Families Association
Share advice and firsthand knowledge with other Adelphi parents and families.
We look forward to your participation and interest and hope that you find being an Adelphi parent is a rewarding and positive experience! Please join us for any one of our seminars, meetings, social events, or University events.
Any parent or legal guardian of an undergraduate student (excluding College of Professional and Continuing Studies and students 25 years of age or older) regularly enrolled at Adelphi University are automatically members of the Parents and Families Association.
The Parents and Families Association holds an annual meeting in conjunction with Adelphi’s Spirit Weekend activities. During this meeting, the Board Officers are elected to serve for the next year. It also provides an opportunity to share experiences and advice with other parents.
- to be an advocate and support for the parents and families of Adelphi students
- to improve students’ Adelphi experience through parental or family knowledge of resources
- to advance the aims and programs of the University.
Much of what the Parents and Families Association accomplishes depends on you—our members. That being said, the association can offer you:
- an opportunity to play a supporting role in your student’s college experience
- a forum for exchange with other parents and families
- an opportunity to further the goals of Adelphi by improving communication between parents, families, and the University.

Adelphi truly feels like a community working together with the goal of success for its students. I want to help students and their families feel more comfortable during our time at Adelphi. I truly believe that we are a community of people with various experiences and we can help each other with obstacles that we encounter, as well as share our happiness with our successes.
