From My Desk
See President Riordan’s latest From My Desk message and stories below.
Each month, I share stories of how Adelphi continues growing, leading and making a difference through our mission to transform lives. I invite you to see the ways our University, students, faculty, staff and alumni are contributing to our communities and advancing their professions and fields of study. I am thrilled to share these stories with you and welcome you to be part of our University community.
Dear Adelphi family and friends,
Adelphi is opening the doors to higher education in ways that ensure access and equity.
This month, I introduce you to one of our University trustees, a powerful voice in the disability community. And you’ll read about a new policy that helps scholarship students stay on track to graduate.
Next month, we will be kicking off Adelphi’s 125th anniversary year of celebration at our annual President’s Gala. Stay well!
All the best!
Adelphi continues to set the pace for student success. Our new policy decision removes the minimum GPA requirement for retaining academic scholarships—a step in support of equity and the mental health of students who rely on this important financial support.
Opening the doors of college education to nontraditional students is an important initiative at Adelphi. More than 60 continuing education workshops will help them advance their professional skills, and we offer them affordability and easy online access.
Our latest President’s Report tells the story of Adelphi’s continued mission and success, thanks to a resilient and determined community. See how we protected one another, stayed on course, and became state leaders in the public health crisis of the century.
