Leading a Transformative Vision for Higher Education.
Our Annual President’s Report
Meeting the challenge. Staying true to our mission.
Our Strategic Plan: Momentum
The Momentum plan is a natural extension of the Adelphi Advantage: our way of identifying what’s good in our students and making it greater. We designed this strategy to do the same with our institution: asking more of ourselves and setting targets to take what’s exceptional about Adelphi and make it truly extraordinary.
Message from the President
Dear Adelphi family and friends,
Founded in Brooklyn 125 years ago this month, Adelphi is now a major metropolitan university. Throughout our history as the first private, coeducational institution of higher education on Long Island, we have continued to lead.
- We offered the country’s first university-based professional school of psychology.
- Our dance department was the first-ever at an American university.
- Adelphi’s groundbreaking Learning Resource Program for college students with learning disabilities expanded access to higher education.
- We are the first in New York state to offer a minor in scientific computing.
- Our PhD in Nursing was a first on Long Island and is one of the few in all of New York state.
As we celebrate our 125 years of innovative leadership in higher education, our Adelphi community continues its powerful commitment to “building tomorrow together.”
All the best!
