At Adler University, graduate students are steeped in the theories of the school’s namesake, Alfred Adler, while receiving rigorous, practical training that allows them to work in a wide variety of disciplines and effect positive change, both in individuals and in society at large.

That explanation is courtesy of Monique Jimenez, associate professor and chair of the university’s Department of Psychology. Jimenez recently shared with Psychology Today what sets the university apart from others in its class.

“The Adler University approach to education is guided by Alfred Adler's groundbreaking concept of social interest or gemeinschaftsgefu?hl – the idea that our health resides in our community life and connections,” she said, in the Psychology today report. “Students' education includes curricula that integrates diversity and individual differences courses and experiences; opportunities for multidisciplinary and inter-professional collaboration; and advisement and mentoring for students.”
