Bridges to Adelphi: Awarding Excellence

Students who self-disclose with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or have difficulties with socialization, organization or social interaction can flourish when provided with academic and social support.

The Bridges to Adelphi program provides these undergraduate and graduate students with the comprehensive support services they need. The program has become a destination for students from all over the United States.

Bridges to Adelphi has been recognized for its work. It won the 2015 Creative Program of the Year award during the 33rd Annual LICSPA Conference and the NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education named Bridges as the Grand Bronze winner of the 2015 NASPA Excellence Awards. NASPA also selected the program as the Gold Award Winner for student health, wellness and counseling excellence.
