A Community of Impact: How Adelphi Is Committed to Service

This month, I am proud to shine a spotlight on Adelphi’s enduring commitment to community engagement—a hallmark of our University since our founding in 1896 as a school for liberal education with a strong mission for civic engagement and service-learning. After more than 120 years, Adelphi’s faculty, students and staff unreservedly engage with our campus and broader community in ways that not only benefit them personally and professionally, but that advance and enrich our friends, colleagues, neighbors, partners and communities.  

Although it proved tricky to select just a few to highlight, this month’s stories illustrate how Adelphi’s earliest charges of service-learning and civic engagement have shaped a community committed to showing compassion and giving back. 

As you can see, Adelphi has a deeply rooted dedication to serve that leads to the betterment of our campus and our communities. I look forward to the future knowing that Panthers everywhere are out there making the world better!

All the best,

President Christine M. Riordan Signature

Christine M. Riordan, Ph.D.
