The Manhattan Center Gets a Face-Lift

News, From My Desk

Adelphi’s Manhattan Center is going through a transformation.

Located in downtown Manhattan, on the corner of Varick and Canal streets, the Manhattan Center provides Adelphi students with their own space in the busiest city in the world. Seated near Soho and the Financial District—and easy to access by train from Garden City—the center is the perfect launching pad for students who want to explore all that this vibrant and multicultural city has to offer.

It’s even more welcoming now thanks to a recent redesign. A gold ceiling resembles a sunrise, alongside giant posters of New York City skylines. This bright, modern makeover transforms the space, incorporating the new Adelphi brand colors to truly represent the University. The center will also include a brand-new lactation room for nursing mothers and a prayer room for all religions.

Still, the Manhattan Center isn’t just undergoing physical renovations. It will also host new programs and immersive student experiences in 2018. While the Manhattan Center has been host to degree programs in social work and teacher education, this September, the new Global M.B.A. program was added to the roster, geared toward international students looking to cultivate business management skills for a global market.

Another program, Adelphi University International (AUI), will provide English as a second language and professional development courses to prepare students for the Global M.B.A. program. The new Adelphi English Language Institute (AELI) program will also provide English-language training for nonstudents and the public, including visitors. Other programs are in the works.

These improvements will help Adelphi expand its footprint outside the main Garden City campus and continue to take advantage of the resources that nearby New York City has to offer. It will also further Adelphi’s mission of connecting with an international student base and the many learning opportunities embedded in one of the world’s most multicultural cities.

For Adelphi, the future of the Manhattan Center is as bright—and as exciting—as New York City itself.
