Adler University Granted Renewal of Consent from the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills

The Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills granted Adler University a renewal of consent to use the term “University” in British Columbia, Canada. The approval, granted under section 4(1) of the Degree Authorization Act, follows a rigorous review process by the Degree Quality Assessment Board.

The renewal grants Adler University, a private nonprofit graduate institution, a five-year term of consent. The renewal underscores Adler’s continued commitment to providing quality higher education in the region. In addition, all master’s and doctoral degree programs have the Ministry’s Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation, which means the institution meets or exceeds quality assurance standards set by the Province of British Columbia.

“The renewal of consent to use the term ‘University’ in British Columbia stands as a testament to Adler’s unwavering dedication to academic excellence and integrity,” said Bradley O’Hara, Ph.D., executive dean of the Vancouver Campus. “It reaffirms our commitment to fostering transformative education and preparing graduates to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.”

Founded as the Institute of Adlerian Psychology in 1952, Adler gained university status in 2015 and has been a beacon of transformative education across its Vancouver, Chicago, and online campuses. Known for its innovative programs and commitment to bringing about transformational positive change across global systems and communities, the University offers a range of graduate-level degrees, including clinical psychology, counseling, and public policy.

Adler University remains committed to upholding the highest educational standards, developing graduates prepared to address the world’s complex challenges, and serving its campus communities.
