Keynote Speaker for the 20th Adelphi Conference

We are delighted to host Dr. Francine Conway—Chancellor/Provost of Rutgers University—as this year’s keynote speaker. Dr. Conway is not only a distinguished professor for child psychology, but also a former professor for Adelphi’s Derner Institute. During her time at our university, she was instrumental in transforming the Adelphi Conference for Scholarship and Creative Works from humble beginnings into the showcase of student works it is today. For more information about Dr. Conway’s journey.

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.

The Adelphi Conference for Scholarship and Creative Works is not only a time to share the multifaceted applications of scientific fields, but it is also a time to take in the up-and-coming theories and ideas. During the Adelphi Conference, I often find that questions arise in conversations with researchers in other disciplines that create a potential for scientific advancements.
