Overview

Overview

As a teacher, I believe in holding the bar high, so students get the most from my classes. It’s very important for me to offer students the best educational opportunity possible. And I find that this philosophy fits with the University’s. Adler offers a very comprehensive and well-supported student experience.

Those enrolled in our master’s-level counselling programs graduate with a sound knowledge of counselling skills based on theory and practice. They are prepared to work in many settings and with many populations. And our attention to social justice better prepares them to work with clients who have diverse needs.

I also enjoy teaching at Adler because it is a student-focused, nonprofit school. I appreciate the University’s responsiveness to its students and its faculty and am happy to be part of a team who prepares students for success.

Vancouver Campus

Adler University in Vancover has been, like Canada itself, born and built with an open mind. Located in the midst of one of the world’s most exciting and breathtaking cities, Adler University reflects a true Canadian spirit. It’s smart, inclusive and determined to make a world of difference. By design, our Vancover campus echoes the Adler values and intent down every hall and in every room. It is built to live, breathe and inspire those with the passion to pursue a more just society. This is where the work gets done.

At Adler Vancover, you’ll find multiple collaborative areas with the absolute latest technology. Learning areas and windows have literally been situtated to stimulate thought. To some, that may sound odd, but these things do matter. If students are given the space, opportunity and technology to achieve their goals, they are more likely to rock the boat of conventional thought.
