Diversity at Adelphi: Our Mission and Our Latest Milestones

…in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.—Maya Angelou. These words sum up my August newsletter about the culture that we embrace and nurture at Adelphi. 

One pillar of our strategic plan, Momentum, is “to be a model of diversity and inclusion.” Our community works together to achieve that goal—and others are taking notice. INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine selected Adelphi for a Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award and our faculty for an Inspiring Programs in STEM Award for diversity in the science classroom. Three area school districts have already implemented our extraordinary model of a diversity program. Also, we now rank 4.5 stars (out of 5) on the Campus Pride Index.

Indeed, we are becoming a stronger model every day.

All the best,

President Christine M. Riordan Signature
