Adler University Launches Online Global Campus
07.06.15

Adler University has officially become a three-campus university, expanding its socially responsible practice model to a new Global Campus in 2015-2016. The Global Campus brings together Adler’s entirely online programs under one virtual campus.

“Through our Vancouver Campus, our Chicago Campus, and our new Global Campus, Adler University is truly positioned to advance its mission and impact with global reach,” says Adler University President Raymond E. Crossman. “This new structure also helps align dedicated resources for the direction and support of each of our three campuses.”

Greta Ferkel has been named Executive Dean for the Global Campus. With more than 20 years of experience leading online education program development, management, assessment, and student support, Ferkel is an expert in advancing and refining methods of pedagogy.

In describing Adler’s approach to online education, Ferkel emphasizes the school’s commitment to quality. “The Global Campus environment provides close faculty mentoring and class-sizes limited to 15 students. These are rare features for an online experience; however, they are hallmarks of Adler University graduate programs and instrumental in making them so engaging and effective.”

The Global Campus is specifically designed to allow people already invested in community-building the opportunity to earn an advanced degree that will help them become truly transformative advocates for social justice—wherever they may live—while balancing ongoing responsibilities to family, work, and community.

The Global Campus’s initial Master of Arts degrees include the following:
