Beginning Together
Welcome back! Fall is always full of energy as our community kicks off the semester. In addition to the start of classes, we have a number of exciting events coming up, including Ephemeral on September 29 and talks by James McBride and Tim Gunn in October. Also, check out our packed athletics schedule. I hope to see you at a game!
This fall, we want to focus on our community pride and engagement. This monthly e-news update is just one effort to keep everyone informed of news and events and to highlight stories of the people who make this place great.
Please continue to keep me posted on your news and accomplishments. #PeopleMakeThePlace!
I look forward to a fantastic fall and to seeing you around. 
All the best,
Welcome, Class of 2019!
We are so happy to have you begin your college and graduate school journeys at Adelphi. It has been a pleasure to meet so many of you at Orientation and Matriculation, and I look forward to getting to know even more of you this fall. You will find a welcoming community ready to guide you to success. Please get involved and take advantage of our many student services.  Remember to let me know about your accomplishments

Fallon Kane, a psychology and criminal justice major, has been recognized by the American Psychological Association for an unprecedented study linking dependent personality disorder in men with domestic violence. Kane conducted the research with Professor Robert Bornstein, Ph.D., as part of Derner's Emerging Scholars Program.
"This research is so significant because dependency and dependent personality disorder are highly misunderstood." --Fallon Kane

100-Day Listening Tour
I have had the pleasure of hearing the innovative ideas and frank feedback of students, faculty, staff and alumni during my 100-Day Listening Tour, which kicked off in late July. The live dialogues have proven to be excellent forums for
getting to know the people who make Adelphi such a special place and for exchanging ideas about future opportunities for the University. Such candid dialogue is critical at this time when Adelphi, like the entire field of higher education, is changing. This is our chance to think big. I look forward to hearing from more of you at our live dialogues, and, if you are unable to attend an event, please share your thoughts online. Following the listening tour, we will engage in a strategic planning process.
Mark your calendars for Commencement 2016, to be held on Sunday, May 22, 2016, in a new venue: Nikon Jones Beach Theater. More details to come!
Adelphi's annual Ephemeral exhibition opens on Tuesday, September 29, 2015, with a day of events, including Chalk UP! from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., followed by a performance of Ghost Stories and a free reception.
James McBride, author of the Adelphi Community Reads book The Color of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother, speaks on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, at 7:00 p.m., part of the Racial Justice Matters initiative.
