Adelphi University opened its doors as a preparatory academy in Brooklyn, New York, in 1863. By the end of the nineteenth century, Adelphi was recognized as a co-educational institution with a charter granted by the Board of Regents of the State of New York. Recognition continued as Adelphi became noted as the “first private co-educational institute of higher education on Long Island.” Today, the University continues to expand, hiring additional faculty, updating facilities, and installing modern technology. Adelphi University currently maintains four campuses, including the Garden City Campus, Manhattan Center, Hauppauge Center, and Hudson Valley Center, in addition to select programs at off-campus centers. Furthermore, the University houses eight schools.
