The Adler Graduate School’s Board of Directors is an independent board of professionals made up of community business members and higher education professionals. It actively monitors and supports progress in achieving the milestones and objectives laid out in the school’s Institutional Effectiveness Plan. This plan provides the framework for institutional assessment and continuous improvement and is based on the Core Values of Adler Graduate School: Quality Education, Adlerian Principles, Diversity, and Institutional Sustainability.


The Board supports the work of Adler Graduate School and provides mission-based leadership and strategic governance. The purpose of the Board of Directors is oversight of:

  • The quality of education provided by AGS;
  • How the institution employs Adlerian principles (democratic and strength-based functioning, encouragement, and accountability) to promote the well-being of both internal and external constituents;
  • The college’s commitment to diversity/equity to promote student growth and both internal and external community development;
  • Aspects of functioning that promote institutional sustainability.
