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 has a rich history that has produced graduate degree programs for contemporary social change—including western Canada’s first Psy.D. program.
Our rigorous programs are based on a scholar/practitioner education model to prepare students as leaders and socially responsible practitioners. Education and training takes place at our downtown Vancouver campus and in diverse local and international environments. Recognized for our mission-driven curricula, Adler University partners with organizations throughout British Columbia and beyond enabling students to gain real-world experience through intensive practica and internships in a wide range of community, corporate, human service, healthcare, government and other settings.
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 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.
