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.

Meet our newest—and youngest—Newman Civic Fellow, a first-generation Hispanic student. Also, learn how nontraditional students are finding a world-class home at Adelphi.

Finally, please enjoy our just-released 2019–2020 President’s Report, Transforming Lives in an Unprecedented Year.

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 is making local, national and global news.

Here are some recent media highlights:

  • The New York Times and Live Science featured the groundbreaking research of our associate professor of biology Michael D’Emic, PhD.
  • In a Parents article about COVID-19 in children, K.C. Rondello, MD, our University epidemiologist and clinical associate professor of public health, offered expert insight.
  • Fast Company featured powerful advice about resilience from our own Josh Altman, PhD, associate director of the Student Counseling Center.
  • The Associated Press quoted Joaniko Kohchi, director of Adelphi’s Institute for Parenting, in an article now published more than 350 times around the world.

There’s no question the case deserves the type of scrutiny it is getting. Americans want to see justice at work and we deserve to.
