Mission Statement

Our University transforms the lives of all students by creating a distinctive environment of intellectual rigor, research, creativity and deep community engagement across four core areas of focus:  arts and humanities, STEM and social sciences, the professions, and health and wellness.


We will become a nationally respected leader—a standard bearer—for redefining the practical and personal value of education for students, helping them define their success in the classroom, on campus, in careers and communities, and beyond.


We are guided by six core values that exemplify the type of community we seek to create:

  1. Academic excellence
  2. Creativity and Innovation
  3. Community and collaboration
  4. Global awareness and diversity
  5. Respect for the individual
  6. Truth and integrity

The Strategic Plan for Adelphi University, 2015–2021

The Momentum plan is a natural extension of the Adelphi Advantage: our way of identifying what’s good in our students and making it greater. We designed this strategy to do the same with our institution: asking more of ourselves and setting targets to take what’s exceptional about Adelphi and make it truly extraordinary.
