Adler's 2017 Annual Report
Shows Social Justice Strides

For more than 65 years, Adler University community members have committed to mitigating challenging questions, fractured systems and seemingly insurmountable barriers. And last year was no exception.

But now they ask, “Where do we go from here?” That is the pointed question posed at the start of the institution’s 2017 Annual Report, a video summary of the year released today by Adler University leaders. The hope, they say, is that the multimedia format lends itself to easy sharing with a mass audience.

“The report highlights – as did last week’s powerful university-wide retreat – the importance, potential, and impact of our work and mission,” said University President Ray Crossman, Ph.D. “Alfred Adler and our founders were ahead of their time; in our commitment to the marginalized and oppressed, we work to stay ahead of ours.”

The less-than two-minute clip highlights Adler’s impressive student enrollment gains – more activists or “boots on the ground” to propel much-needed social change – increased scholarship opportunities, and last year’s completion of a new Vancouver campus, among other successes.
