Dr. Crossman Talks Trump's Destructive Tactics in The Chronicle of Higher Ed

In a March report characterizing the White House's actions as "waging a war" on higher education, Adler University President Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D., shared concerns ranging from President Trump’s rhetoric about violence in Chicago, to his approach to LGBTQ rights.

The Chronicle of Higher Education interviewed higher education thought leaders from across the country in its piece, “Trump’s Wild Ride.”

“President Trump’s early tenure has been marked by the very disruption and impulsiveness that ingratiated him to voters demanding change,” according to the article. “ … While there are certainly exceptions, particularly among for-profit colleges that anticipate freer rein to do business, much of higher education is worked into a lather over the dizzying orders and pronouncements coming from the White House.”

A psychologist, family therapist and co-founder of LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education, Crossman says he knows that institutions like Adler University may be impacted by Trump’s approach to many crucial issues, including human rights.
