About Adelphi

Board of Trustees


Our expert leadership.

The Board of Trustees delegates operational authority to the president as the University’s chief executive officer with the expectations of transparency, accountability, performance, collaboration and service as the face and voice of the University.

A senior administrative team of five vice presidents reports to the president and works collaboratively to establish and achieve institutional priorities. This organizational structure provides continuous review of progress against goals and facilitates data-driven decision making.
