Adelphi’s College of Nursing and Public Health began in 1943 as the first Central Collegiate School of Nursing, which became one of the largest units of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated the residence halls built to accommodate the cadets in 1944. Today, the College of Nursing and Public Health is thriving and, in 2015, will move to a new home in the 100,000-square-foot Nexus Building and Welcome Center.In 1972, Adelphi’s Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies became the nation’s first university-based professional school of psychology. Since then, the Derner Institute has emerged as an internationally recognized leader in scientific and clinical psychology.With one of the lowest tuitions among the 19 private colleges and universities on Long Island, Adelphi has been named a Best Buy by the Fiske Guide to Colleges for eight consecutive years. A low student-to-faculty ratio (10:1) enables Adelphi to carry out its commitment to personalized education. And Adelphi’s graduation rates—the highest of any comprehensive private college in the Long Island region—are proof of the effectiveness of its approach.From its inception, Adelphi University has been responsive to student aspirations, societal needs and the changing career landscape. We have adapted our degree programs and continuing education opportunities to better meet the demands of today’s technology-driven, global, and interconnected economy and society. The ability of our graduates to successfully navigate these connections, emerge as leaders, and make contributions in their communities is the hallmark of an Adelphi education.
