colleges and schools

Adelphi University comprises eight colleges and schools. After first reference using the full name of the school (Ruth S. Ammon School of Education), the abbreviated school names may be used (e.g., Ammon School of Education). Acceptable abbreviations follow in parentheses:

  • College of Arts and Sciences
  • College of Education and Health Sciences
  • College of Nursing and Public Health
  • Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology (Derner School of Psychology)
  • Honors College
  • Robert B. Willumstad School of Business (Willumstad School of Business)
  • School of Social Work
  • College of Professional and Continuing Studies

In most instances, the colleges and schools of the University should appear in alphabetical order. However, for certain publications, such as the Commencement Program, they should appear in order of founding. Publications that list the schools in order of founding should note that they have done so.

On first mention of any of the schools or colleges above in running copy, use Adelphi University as part of the school or college’s full name.
