Adelphi University’s roots reach back to 1863 and the founding of the Adelphi Academy, a private preparatory school in Brooklyn, New York. The Academy was incorporated in 1869 and its Board of Trustees was charged with establishing a first class institution for the broadest and most thorough training, and to make its advantages as accessible as possible to the largest numbers of our population. 


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.


The mission of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is to provide faculty and administration with assistance in seeking and obtaining external funding. ORSP strives to provide the best possible services and resources to Adelphi faculty. The Office reports to the Provost.
