Adelphi Mourns the Loss of Amy Hagedorn ’05 (Hon.)


Adelphi University mourns the passing of Amy Hagedorn ’05 (Hon.), a great friend, honorary degree recipient and generous benefactor of the University. A model community leader and humanitarian, she inspired us with her integrity, her commitment to social justice and equality and her passion for education. She generously provided the seed funding for Adelphi’s early childhood education center and its parental outreach program, and she and her late husband Horace Hagedorn ’01 (Hon.) transformed Adelphi through their support. Her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of students, faculty and staff who continue to benefit from her philanthropy. Our thoughts are with the Hagedorn and Maiello families.

Christine M. Riordan, Ph.D., President

Ronald B. Lee ’67, Chairman, Adelphi University Board of Trustees
