Evolution: Revolution (2015 Annual Report)
Our revolution is to change the world.  It's a revolution we are uniquely prepared to generate. We were founded to advance Alfred Adler's profound teaching that it's our human responsibility to improve social conditions. As the world's problems have evolved, so too have we, as an institution of higher learning, to address them.

Game Changer (2014 Annual Report)
A game changer alters the landscape. It confronts challenge and refuses to relent. That's what we're all about this year: game-changing ideas that transform. What hasn't changed is our mission: graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging communities, and advancing social justice.

Breaking the Rules (2013 Annual Report)
Our approaches break the rules. They defy expectations of a graduate institution. It is what we have done since 1952, when our school was founded to train practitioners who can advance Alfred Adler's pioneering conepts for acheiving health through social interest.<

Driven by Alfred Adler’s paradigm-shifting ideas for sixty years (2012 Annual Report)
In 1952, Rudolf Dreikurs came to Chicago and established the Alfred Adler Institute to train practitioners in applying Alfred Adler revolutionary ideas: Our health resides in our community life, and socially responsible practitioners work to ensure community health. Today, as the Adler University, we continue preparing practitioners who apply these ideas like never before.

It’s been a good year (2011 Annual Report)
Meeting ambitious goals. Preparing greater numbers of future practitioners. Building new support, and being nationally recognized for our advocacy, practice, and approaches. In these challenging times, these are things to be proud of. And we are.  It’s been a good year for Adler University. And what’s important about that is the “why.”
