President Crossman’s Contract Extended for Five More Years

University News | 04.15.19

The Adler University Board of Trustees recently voted unanimously to renew the contract for President Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D., for five more years, extending through the 2023–2024 academic term.

“Dr. Crossman is a brilliant and mission-driven leader who has guided the University to make great strides over the past 15 years,” said Joy MacPhail, Chair of the Adler University Board of Trustees.

During Dr. Crossman’s tenure, Adler University has grown from a psychology school with fewer than 200 students to a university enrolling more than 1,400 graduate students at its Chicago, Vancouver, and Online campuses.

In recent years, Dr. Crossman has overseen the launch of the Online Campus, the opening of the new Vancouver Campus facility, and the purchase of the Chicago Campus facility.

“The trustees know Dr. Crossman is the right person to move the University forward as we complete our strategic plan and create innovative new academic programs that align with our Adlerian mission,” MacPhail said, adding that the Board values “the commitment and consistency of Dr. Crossman’s long-term leadership of our institution.”
