As a contemporary institution of learning, Adelphi University encourages students, faculty and staff to seek educational experiences outside of the traditional classroom. A variety of diversity-focused training and mentoring programs provide opportunities for members of our community to broaden their horizons and improve our campus climate for all individuals.
The Adelphi University Mentoring Program was created to help ensure academic success, especially for students of color who may be the first in their families to attend college.
The program supports the academic, social and professional development of students at any phase of their undergraduate career. The office skillfully pairs students with mentors who will guide and nurture them to help ensure their collegiate success.
Through training, structured group activities and ongoing conversations, mentors will be well equipped to help mentees successfully navigate their college careers and to help guide their decisions, assisting with retention and graduation
The Adelphi University Diversity Certificate Program is designed to promote a positive, respectful work place and learning space for all of our constituents, including employees, students, faculty and administrators. It is supported by the Office of Human Resources, Office of the Provost, Office of the President and the University Diversity Committee. The Diversity Certificate program is intended to address diversity and inclusion holistically including, but is not limited to, race, creed, color, national origin, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, religion, and marital and veteran status.
The mission of the Safe Zone training program at Adelphi University is to identify and support students, faculty, and staff who identify as a Safe Zone advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ community. Through education, advocacy and awareness, they will be empowered to speak out against homophobia and heterosexism. The program’s goal is to contribute to an open campus climate that is safe, accepting and just for all members of the University community.
