Larry Axelrod, Ph.D.
Dean, Vancouver Campus

Coming to Adler and serving as Dean of the Vancouver campus is really the culmination of my own education, interests, and professional goals. Having studied and specialized in a range of social and organizational dynamics—motivation, conflict, and social responsibility—as well as professional ethics, I am excited to continue my work by supporting the mission and values of the School. As Dean, I focus my energy on furthering our position as the premier institution for advancing social justice.

The other role I embrace is mentoring the next generation of practitioners dedicated to the Adler vision. Our community exists for the larger community. My door is always open, and I welcome the opportunity to speak with students.

Please e-mail or call me (604-482-5513) if you have questions or would like more information about me.
