Founded on June 24, 1896, Adelphi University is the first institution of higher education on Long Island, and its charter was one of the earliest granted by the New York State Board of Regents to a coeducational college. The University is in its second century of practical preparation for undergraduates, graduate students, and returning adult students in the arts, sciences, humanities, business, education, nursing and health maintenance, social welfare, and clinical psychology. Adelphi has a mission of service to Long Island, the New York metropolitan region, and the nation.
