Support Swirbul's Innovation Evolution
Here at Adelphi, the library is more than just books. It’s a quiet study room, a gateway to the latest research, accessible commons for collaborative learning and an access point for state-of-the-art technology. In short, it is an invaluable resource to each and every Adelphi student.
Throughout its history, the Library has continuously adapted to the needs of each new generation of students.
Plans are now underway to transform the first floor of Swirbul into an innovative hub where knowledge is accessed, produced and shared. Adelphi’s Innovation Center is scheduled to open in 2019 and will serve as a home for interdisciplinary teaching and research partnerships between Adelphi and industry. The 2,000-square-foot studio will allow faculty members and students to increase the scope of work they are already doing with companies like GEICO, UPS and 1-800-Flowers.com, Inc. It will also function as an incubator of student-created businesses and new campus organizations. As its name suggests, the center will be devoted to the development of innovative solutions to real-world challenges, solutions that will benefit the region and the nation.
Your Giving Day gift will help purchase more of the electronic equipment today's students need, such as charging cords and power stations, and fuel the ongoing technological and digital evolution of the Library. Thank you for your generosity.
