It’s official! The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education will become the College of Education and Health Sciences in January 2019.
 
Adelphi University’s Board of Trustees has unanimously voted in support of the proposal to restructure for student success! In Spring 2019, we will become two schools under one umbrella. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and the Department of Health and Sport Sciences (HSS) will merge to form a new school, joining their sister school, the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, to become the College of Education and Health Sciences .
 
Kudos to faculty, staff and administrators who worked deliberately and thoughtfully to realign our curricula, programs and internal structure to better meet the needs of our students. This restructure will facilitate the growth and further development of our world-class professional education programs. We are excited to see what the future holds. Now the real work begins!
 
In the meantime, as you will see in this edition of the EDnews , our students are thriving, excelling academically and coming together to form strong bonds of community and service.
 
Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education, Nu-Nu Chapter, held the largest induction in its history—54 students joined together in fellowship. Phi Delta Kappa International honor society was named the fastest growing chapter internationally. We initiated the Education Alumni Affinity Group to provide focused opportunities for new graduates and our seasoned and distinguished alumni to come together in fraternity, mutual support and camaraderie.
 
Our faculty members have once again achieved great things, bringing us global attention and acclaim. Associate Professor Rita Verma, Ph.D., was awarded the prestigious Mahatma Gandhi Pravasi Samman International Award at Britain’s House of Lords last November. The AIESEP (International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education) banner has been passed and our HSS department will host that esteemed international conference across three days in June 2019. We’ve hired a new director of the Manhattan education programs and revitalized offerings in educational leadership and TESOL.
 
These and many more success stories grace this edition of EDnews and our webpages. Please share your thoughts with us.
 
We hope to see you in the spring. Please join us for the Ruth S. Ammon Endowed Lecture in Education on Tuesday, February 26; the first Annual Pre-K Education Conference , sponsored by the Alice Brown Early Learning Center and initially called the Early Learning Conference , on Friday, April 5; and Inside the Teacher’s Classroom , tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 30.
 
Have a wonderful holiday season!
 
Cordially,
 
Anne Mungai, Ph.D.
Interim Dean
Ruth S. Ammon School of Education
