Stories That Changed Our Lives: A Gathering of Panthers Past, Present and Future
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
Throughout the global COVID-19 crisis, support and help have come from all directions within the Adelphi community—faculty leaders, alumni and students in the fields of epidemiology, healthcare, social work and psychology are tackling the pandemic head on.
The arts are also playing a powerful role in our togetherness, compassion and healing. This month, I want to share the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and University Professor Paul Moravec—his inspiring and joyful composition, “Light Shall Lift Us.” More than 100 opera singers of all ethnicities—each singing from home—came together to participate in this amazing event.
As you listen, I hope you will also be inspired by these Adelphi stories:
- How we are providing food to the healthcare front lines
- How we are housing local healthcare heroes who are hesitant to go home
- Why we are launching research into the psychological effects of a pandemic
- How we’re offering teletherapy to those in our community with urgent mental health challenges
As we watch our Class of 2020 take their first steps into the future as Adelphi alumni and we diligently plan for our safe, smart and smooth return to learning this fall, I wish you a happy summer and continued safety.
All the best,
Christine M. Riordan, PhD
