Our Commitment to Social Change

The Adler School of Professional Psychology's commitment to educating and training socially responsible graduates builds upon the work of Alfred Adler. The School defines socially responsible graduates as people who embrace diverse perspectives; work to build and maintain bridges across social, economic, cultural, racial, and political systems; empower others to identify and address shared problems; and foster the development of social equality, justice, and respect through compassionate action throughout the global community.

Degree programs ground students in research and theory about the impact of structural and systemic factors on human well being. Programs also provide training on how to impact social policies, address community issues, and solve social problems.

The School pursues social responsibility through service to communities, especially to disenfranchised and marginalized populations, and through the Institutes for Social Change.
