Adler University continues the pioneering work of the first community psychologist Alfred Adler by graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging communities, and advancing social justice. Alfred Adler began community psychology by articulating the constructs of gemeinschaftsgefühl (social interest or the connection between individual and community well being) and systemic / structural community intervention (such as preventative public health measures). Adler University, as a higher education institution, continues his work today through the production of three outcomes which are specified in the Mission: Socially Responsible Practitioners: Socially responsible practitioners are educated to be effective personal and social change agents in the pursuit of justice. Community Engagement: Community engagement is collaborative partnership that strengthens communities, provides service, and prepares students. Social Justice: Social justice refers to equitable distribution of economic, political, civil, cultural, social, and other resources and opportunities in society in order to promote the optimal development of persons and communities.
