Diamandopoulos was the President of Adelphi from 1985 to 1997. In 1996, the New York State Board of Regents ("Regents") conducted hearings on a petition which alleged that Diamandopoulos, along with the other Trustees, were guilty of neglect of duty, misconduct and failure to carry out the educational purposes of Adelphi. The report found that all but one recently appointed Trustee had breached their fiduciary duties to Adelphi, in, inter alia, granting a compensation package to Diamandopoulos which was excessive. The Regents removed Diamandopoulos and 17 others as Trustees of the University, and appointed 18 new Trustees. At the first meeting of the new Board of Trustees, Diamandopoulos was also removed as president of Adelphi.
Dr. Robert A. Scott was appointed by the Adelphi University Board of Trustees as the ninth president and professor of anthropology and sociology in July 2000. He has built on Adelphi's rich traditions in undergraduate and graduate education and continues to link the liberal arts and sciences with professional programs. He has been the driving force behind the success Adelphi University has achieved in the past four years. Undergraduate enrollment has increased by 43 percent since September 2000. To support the increase in students, more than 140 new faculty have been hired, with 34 in fall 2003 and 42 in fall 2004. The University recently completed its first new residence hall in 36 years to accommodate growing student demand. Alumni giving has risen by nearly 620 percent. In recent years, the University has received several million-dollar gifts, the largest in its history.
