Key Adler Trailblazer Featured As 'On The Dot' Woman

A publication focused on delivering a “daily dose of inspiration” recently found it in a key Adler University faculty member whose passion for advancing social justice and engaging communities is palpable.

Dr. Elena Quintana, executive director of the university’s Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice, was selected as a “Woman to Watch” by On the Dot. The publication and its respective newsletter serves readers the latest news, stories and commentary about women in business.

“Let’s break down Elena’s important work in simple terms,” the feature says. “When it comes to violence in any community, instead of cursing the darkness, Elena sheds light on what’s driving such violence.”

Hailed as a community builder, Dr. Quintana works tirelessly to establish a better society for those re-entering after incarceration, the article says.

The piece also gives a shoutout to Adler University's 1952 debut.

"As the oldest independent school of psychology in North America, Adler University — which has a female-dominated leadership team, by the way — educates students about the importance of engaging communities and advancing social justice," the feature says. "It seems like old Alfred was really onto something!"
