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

Dear Adelphi family and friends,

I am always intrigued to hear our students’ reasons for choosing Adelphi. Some say they fell in love with our beautiful campus. Some appreciate the quick train ride to the excitement of New York City. But, most importantly, students come to Adelphi for one of our many outstanding academic programs that fits their lives, career goals and passions.

The four students I’m highlighting this month each came to Adelphi for a program and career path that truly inspired them:

  • Read why Matthew Brophy, the son of a 9/11 first responder, chose Adelphi’s Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology to launch a career in mental health.
  • See how our nursing program, recently ranked No. 3 in New York state by College Factual, was the ideal fit for transfer student Rejo Jose.
  • Meet Josephine Briones, a night shift nurse, who found the flexible schedule and career potential she needed in Adelphi Online’s MS in Healthcare Informatics program.
  • See how Solomon Claxton will use his degree in educational technology from Adelphi to enrich the lives of those in his island home nation.

Even during these difficult times, when the entire Adelphi community is navigating a global pandemic and its related disruptions and challenges, Adelphi upholds our commitment to life-changing academics.

All the best,

President Christine M. Riordan Signature

Christine M. Riordan, Ph.D.
