Faculty Conference on Issues in Higher Education

The Adelphi Faculty Conference on Issues in Higher Education is designed to be an annual forum dedicated to exploring national and international issues of importance to the higher education landscape. As we lean into the future and prepare for the students who will arrive on our campus or in our online classrooms over the coming years, we are compelled to understand the broad context of the Adelphi learning experience. Our strategic plan, Momentum, is galvanized by a commitment to academic excellence and student success, goals which are on the minds and in the hearts of faculty and academic leadership across our nation and around the world. This conference provides an opportunity to reflect, to work within a framework of shared governance, to deliberate on areas of concern that have emerged at the University, and to contribute to the direction that the institution will take in the year ahead.

Presented by the Adelphi Faculty Senate and the Office of the Provost.

Past Conferences

Spring 2017 Conference

The inaugural Faculty Conference on Issues in Higher Education explored the nature and future of a contemporary liberal education and the demands on higher education to embrace a global and multicultural reality in scholarship, creative endeavors, teaching and learning. Plenary presentations were given by Susan Albertine and William Durden, experienced thought leaders who have contributed mightily to the advancement of liberal and global higher education.
