New Name for the New Year, Geared to Student Success

Anne MungaiIt’s official! The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education will become the College of Education and Health Sciences in January 2019.

Adelphi University’s Board of Trustees has unanimously voted in support of the proposal to restructure for student success! In Spring 2019, we will become two schools under one umbrella. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and the Department of Health and Sport Sciences (HSS) will merge to form a new school, joining their sister school, the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, to become the College of Education and Health Sciences.

Kudos to faculty, staff and administrators who worked deliberately and thoughtfully to realign our curricula, programs and internal structure to better meet the needs of our students. This restructure will facilitate the growth and further development of our world-class professional education programs. We are excited to see what the future holds. Now the real work begins!
