The Adler University follows its namesake, Alfred Adler, a physician and psychotherapist who promoted individual psychology in a positive relationship to the community environment. Founder of the college, Rudolf Dreikurs, established the private, not-for-profit school in 1952 in Chicago. Through the years, Adler University has retained a focus on social justice, operating a group therapy program in Cook County Jail, along with a community health center and training program. By the 1970s, Adler University gained the accreditation to issue Master’s degrees and conferred the first Doctorate degree in 1990. Currently, Adler University maintains campuses in Chicago, Vancouver, British Columbia, and online. Furthermore, Adler University supports the following institutes and centers:
