Since being appointed the 10th president of Adelphi in 2015, I have seen exciting progress at our University. I am proud to be the first woman to serve as president and have worked to establish Adelphi as an incredibly diverse and welcoming place for all. Our talented students enjoy an engaging learning experience in a wide range of cutting-edge fields. Our faculty participate in world-class opportunities to contribute to their disciplines and shape students’ futures.
