Fostering environments that support exploring and challenging taken-for-granted or uncritically assimilated assumptions and values is the key to educating adults. This supports being curious about ideas, values and beliefs and provides for a more robust and complete examination of the theories, models and practices in the field of organizational psychology.
A main goal with an Adler graduate education is developing communities of practice in the field of organizational psychology that value socially responsible practice as a core to delivery. The cohort model inherent in the Masters degrees in organizational psychology is a key building block to developing these communities.
Adler University students choose our graduate programs as an extension of their values in beliefs in social justice and fostering change in organizations. I value the opportunity to participate in this journey with them.
