Who We Are

We’re committed to excellence in education.

Flexible and Convenient Scheduling

To accommodate the needs of students, we offer accelerated semesters and day, evening, and weekend classes throughout the year.

The Cohort Format

We assign each student to a core group so that they can share ideas and experiences, and to provide support during their school experience.

Valuable Practical Experience and Clinical Training

Academic courses are supplemented by mentoring and community service programs that enhance learning and foster close relationships with the greater Adelphi community.

Centers and Institutes

Students receive specialized training through programs at the Early Learning Center, the Center for Literacy Studies, the Adult Fitness Program, the Institute of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, and the Hy Weinberg Center for Communication Disorders.

School and Community Partnerships

Students have the opportunity for teaching internships through Adelphi’s ongoing partnerships with local school districts and health care institutions.

Scholarship and Reflective Practice

We believe educators and practitioners must be scholars who value and engage in lifelong learning. Our community supports the never-ending quest for knowledge, thoughtful reflection, and evolving practice.

Diversity and Inclusion

We value human dignity and diversity in all forms, embrace our differences, and honor all voices. We understand the collective power inherent in fully inclusive communities where each may meet their full potential to contribute.

Health and Wellness

Our conception of education is holistic. We understand the body, mind, and heart must be nurtured equally in all that we do. 

Creativity and the Arts

Creativity and vision are strengths we value and nurture. An open, creative mindset encourages constant reflection on our world and new ways of making it more humane, just, sustainable and beautiful.

Social Justice and Leadership

We understand that as educators and practitioners, we are inherently leaders and role models in all that we do. We work to build strong, civically engaged communities that fearlessly strive for a more just world.
