Adler University

Adler University continues the pioneering work of the first community psychologist Alfred Adler by graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging communities, and advancing social justice. The University’s education and training prepares students to be socially responsible practitioners who engage communities and advance social justice, during both their course of study and their later professional lives. The University directly engages communities – through over 500 community partnerships including the direct service contracts of Adler Community Health Services and the training relationships which support delivery of students’ Community Service Practica – in order to provide students with experience training in socially responsible practice and to advance social justice within those communities. The University’s Institutes for Social Change bring attention to social justice within the University through stimulating changes in the curricula and through specific didactic and experiential activities for students and faculty – as well as promote social justice beyond the boundaries of the University through engaging communities in a variety of programming.
