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.
Adler University in Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver, you’ll find multiple collaborative areas with the absolute latest technology. Learning areas and windows have literally been situated 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.
