Sayville Site Expands Adelphi’s Suffolk Presence

Newsletter


Adelphi, in addition to its ongoing Hauppauge Education and Conference Center, has bolstered its Suffolk County presence with the recent addition of the Sayville site, the latter via a partnership with Suffolk County Community College (SCCC). That Adelphi/SCCC partnership was announced last summer. 

The Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science (R.N. to B.S.) in Nursing program was the first Adelphi program offered at the Sayville site, now known as the Sayville Downtown Center, said Linn Cartagena, Adelphi’s articulation agreement coordinator. The site has since added bachelor’s degree business programs in management and finance. 

In November, Ms. Cartagena added to her title that of associate director of Suffolk centers. As such, Jim McGowan, executive director of Adelphi’s off-campus administration, said she is responsible for operations at the University’s Hauppauge Center, including interaction with various outside agencies, organizations, corporations and local school districts, and she will also oversee Adelphi’s programs at the Sayville Center, including recruiting directly with SCCC and implementing academic programs to which SCCC students can transition. 

Under the partnership with Suffolk County Community College, Adelphi now offers its School of Nursing R.N. to B.S. in Nursing program in Sayville, with classes held once a week, on Thursdays. 

The first R.N. to B.S. in Nursing cohort began at Sayville in September with 22 part-time and a couple of full-time students, with a second cohort starting this spring. 

Meanwhile, the ultimate objective for the Hauppauge Center is to “expand into a professional center for conferences, professional development, business retreats and meetings,” Ms. Cartagena said. “We soon will be looking into expanding our programs to include certificate graduate programs.” 

As for Adelphi’s other extension centers, which also have a transfer population, the R.N. to B.S. in Nursing program is also offered at the Hauppauge and Hudson Valley Centers, with the Manhattan Center scheduled to roll out with the program in September 2013. 

The Sayville site is located on Long Island at 30 Greene Avenue in Sayville, where Adelphi hosted open houses last November and December. At those events, as at Adelphi’s other off-campus sites, prospective students learned about academic programs offered at the center, met Adelphi faculty representatives, spoke with representatives from the Offices of Student Financial Servicesand University Admissions, applied for admission and registered for classes.
