Chicago Campus Psy.D. Program Receives Maximum APA Re-Accreditation

University News | 06.04.19

Adler University’s Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D) program in Chicago received the maximum re-accreditation period from the American Psychological Association (APA). APA’s Commission on Accreditation voted to reaffirm the University’s accredited status for another 10 years, until November 2028.

“It is a wonderful recognition of all our joint dedication and commitment to our students, high academic standards and an acknowledgment that we have created a unique program reflecting our Adlerian mission and values,” said Cristina Cox, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychology, about receiving the maximum term of accreditation.

The re-accreditation process takes several years to complete and includes the efforts and contributions of faculty, students, staff, administration, and alumni, as well as clinical supervisors and community partners helping to provide training opportunities for our students.

“This is a significant accomplishment for our program and allows us to continue to focus on excellence,” Dr. Cox said.
