Multicultural Student Success

Adelphi University is devoted to making sure everyone here, students, faculty and staff, are welcomed, heard and supported in every way to succeed in the classroom, their careers and communities.

 

So many of our alumni have strengthened our diversity efforts and on Giving Day, we invite you to support our multicultural students in these many different ways:

 

Marc S. Strachan, B.B.A. '81 and Adelphi board of trustee member, established the following four endowed scholarships in February 2017 to help underserved students receive the personal, extraordinary education only Adelphi can provide.

  • The Helen Holmes Taylor '49 Scholarship in Nursing supports undergraduate nursing students with financial need and a spirit of fortitude.
  • Excellence in Math & Sciences Scholarship is committed to promoting leading females in the disciplines of math and science with a pioneering spirit.
  • The Frances R. (“Fannie Mae”) Strachan Award helps freshman with financial need, activism/community involvement, and overcame a challenge.
  • W.E.B. DuBois Scholarship supports students with a minor in African, Black and Caribbean Studies, demonstrated leadership, and activism involvement.

Nearly five decades ago, seven African American women— Renaye (Brown) Cuyler ’70, Diane (Hunter) Hazel ’69, Lavida (Robinson) Allen ’72, Charlotte (Matthews) Harris ’69, Jacquelyn Lendsey ’71, Joyce (Barnett) Montague ’69 and Lorene Wilkerson ’69 (formerly Lawrene Street)—found each other at what was then a predominantly white Adelphi University. Forever the Adelphi 7 Sisters, they decided in 2012 to create a legacy at Adelphi, the place where their story began.

  • The Adelphi 7 Sisters Endowed Scholarship Fund is dedicated to those committed to promoting females in the workforce with financial need.

Other ways to support our diverse students are:

  • The Della Hudson Scholarship, established in 2001 by Adelphi students for their long-time administrator and club adviser, supports full-time undergraduates with special need.
  • The One Hundred Black Men Endowed Scholarship began in 1985 by 100 Black Men of Nassau/Suffolk to assist junior or senior business students of African heritage from Nassau or Suffolk counties.
  • The Multicultural Excellence Fund allows the university to direct funding to the multicultural programming across campus where it is needed most.

YOU can be part of something BIG today with your giving day gift, ensuring even more multicultural students in need can receive an exceptional Adelphi education!
