Editorial Guidelines

Our goal is to promote Adelphi University and its programs in a clear, coherent and consistent manner. 

The following guide provides our standards for editorial consistency and serves as an easy-to-use reference regarding the University style, punctuation and word usage. If a rule or word is not covered in this guide, first check The Associated Press Stylebook, then Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition.

The guide will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure current and relevant rules. Please follow these guidelines when writing for the University, whether for print materials, emails or website content.
