Diversity Committee

Learn about the people leading Adelphi’s diversity goals.

Adelphi University’s Diversity Committee is a campus-wide committee reporting to the Provost. Formed in 2003, the committee has been charged with providing leadership and advancing the University’s diversity goals. Committee membership includes representation from faculty, staff, administrators and students from all areas of the campus community.

The committee underscores the importance of advancing diversity within institutions of higher education to reflect the changing demographics of the population and the growing globalization of society. The committee’s definition of diversity includes race, creed, color, national origin, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, genetic predisposition or carrier status, religion, marital status, veteran status, or any other basis protected by applicable local, state, or federal laws.

Thoughts on Diversity

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.– Maya Angelou, African-American Poet, Civil Rights Leader, National Women's Hall of Fame

Thoughts on Diversity

I believe that strong and vibrant cultures themselves nurture tolerance and justice. All cultures worth the name protect support and encourage diversity; and justice is the practical mechanism which enables them to do so.– Dr. Nafis Sadik, former UNFPA Executive Director
