December 2023

As the fall semester comes to a close, we ring in the holidays by sharing our annual holiday greeting and a thank you to everyone who has contributed to our success. This past year has been extraordinary, and I’m proud to present highlights from my State of the University address that point to an exciting future for our community.

Student success and faculty excellence continue to inspire progress this month. A professor makes service trips to Ukraine to contribute to an educational transformation. Our highly selective Early Assurance Program propels students into medical careers ahead of schedule. And the College of Professional and Continuing Studies honors mother-scholars taking advantage of our flexible programs and mentoring to advance their careers while raising their families.

On behalf of everyone at Adelphi, I hope you enjoy many special moments with your loved ones this season and celebrate a new year of opportunity. Happy holidays!

All the best,

Enjoy Our 2023 Holiday Greeting

We invite you to take a few moments to celebrate the holiday spirit—and make your own holiday wish—with all of us here at Adelphi. Our beautiful campus, and the sky above, was painted by Sarah McCay, Office of University Communications and Marketing art director.

There’s a COVID weariness that has set in with many. They are tired of hearing about it, they are tired of thinking about it and they are tired of worrying about it.”

In a Newsday article about a recent survey that found barely half of Long Island and New York City adults have received an updated COVID-19 vaccine or plan on getting one, K.C.
