Adler University educates students to engage the world and create a more just society. Established in 1952 to build on the pioneering work of Alfred Adler, the first community psychologist, the University offers master’s and doctoral degree programs for social change. Rigorous programs and learning experiences take place in the classroom and around the world, focused on advancing social justice in fields from public policy and administration, to fast-growing specialties in counseling and psychology.
Students benefit from small classes, close-knit program networks, and a highly diverse faculty of experienced practitioners, educators, mentors and scholars. Academic support, coaching, professional development seminars, active alumni networking, and dozens of student organizations all provide support. Traditional classroom programs with full- and part-time options, and weekday, evening, and weekend classes are offered.
Alumni lead change in diverse careers, in teaching and research, private practice and consulting, business, healthcare, social services and the not-for-profit sector, and government. In the University’s most recent alumni survey, nearly 91% of respondents report employment within a year of graduation.
The University’s Center for LGBTQ Mental Health and Inclusion, Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice, and Institute on Social Exclusion all engage faculty, staff, students and communities in applied research and capacity-building in partnership with communities and government. Adler has been awarded the Community Engagement Classification by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching—recognizing excellent alignment among campus mission, culture, leadership, resources, and practices of exemplary community engagement.
