Where intellectual curiosity comes to life through hundreds of undergraduate and graduate student presentations spanning disciplines from arts and humanities to natural and social sciences.
20th Adelphi Conference for Scholarship and Creative Works
This year’s conference took place on April 25, 2023.
An annual sign of spring, the Scholarship and Creative Works Conference, offers the unique opportunity for hundreds of Adelphi University students to showcase their work as they present their research to fellow students, faculty, family members, alumni and visitors.
This annual celebration is a testament to the thriving academic environment and vibrant creative community experienced by students at Adelphi. We encourage all in our community to attend and explore the exceptional work being done by our students.
What is New in 2023?
A panel discussion Powering the Future: Transitioning to Clean Energy to Combat the Climate Crisis will begin the Scholarship and Creative Works Conference and include a complimentary breakfast. At this event, the panel of experts will share their insights on what’s happening in the fields of science, technology, and public policy. They’ll identify the challenges we’ll need to address and the opportunities that await as we transition to a cleaner, greener future.
Everyone attending—including presenters, friends, family, and other visitors—must register in advance to secure their spot.

A Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity
One day each spring, we come together as a community to celebrate student scholarship and creativity during the annual Adelphi University Scholarship and Creative Works Conference. Students get to share their hard work with their peers, faculty members and visitors. In the process, they build presentation and communication skills, learn to defend their work and engage with other academics, and, overall, develop an appreciation for scholarship and what it contributes to society. At the end of the day, we join our inspiring keynote speaker’s lecture and celebrate with our entire research community.
