Insight into Diversity interviewed Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D., on his experiences as an 'out' president and creating a campus culture that empowers social justice and a sense of belonging.

“We pay attention to pluralism and inclusion, and that’s really built into the fabric of our education here and into the learning environment," Dr. Crossman said. "My experience growing up as a gay kid made me look at the world in a particular way and made me interested in social justice. It really was an experience that in many ways shaped me into a leader who is a good fit for leading an institution [focused on] social justice.”

Dr. Crossman is president of Adler University, a psychologist and family therapist, as well as a a co-founder of LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education.
