Adelphi’s Department of Health and Sport Sciences believes that students should be health advocates in the classroom, on the field and in the world. By focusing on health and the whole person, our students learn to enhance the lives of individuals, families and communities. Our department stands by the principle that physical activity benefits should be available to everyone—regardless of background, appearance, belief system or socioeconomic status.
