Adelphi University’s Eleventh Annual Research Conference is evidence of the Adelphi University Community’s commitment to scholarship. The purpose of this conference is to offer both faculty and students a stage from which they can display their scholarship, but also to inspire those who wish to engage in research and scholarly explorations in the future.
We encourage participation from all disciplines, including the Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Nursing, Humanities, and the Arts.
