Adler University continues the pioneering work of the first community psychologist Alfred Adler by graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging communities, and advancing social justice. Adler University is named for Alfred Adler (1870 – 1937), a physician, psychotherapist, and founder of Adlerian psychology, sometimes called individual psychology. Today, Adler University prepares students to engage the world and create a more just society – enrolling more than 1,800 graduate students at its campuses in downtown Chicago and Vancouver (BC), as well as on an online campus. Adler’s vision is to be the leading academic institution advancing socially responsible practice, healthy communities, and a more just society.

Reporting to the University President, the Vice President, Institutional Advancement partners with the advancement team and senior management team of the University to implement Adler’s philanthropic goals. This critical role drives fundraising and grants activity across the university, supports the philanthropic engagement of the trustees and university partners, and supports the president’s fundraising activities as well as provides thought-leadership to the university while leveraging industry knowledge and best practices to promote the mission and vision of the institution.

The Vice President, Institutional Advancement will manage a team of six, four in Chicago, and two in Vancouver. The team includes a Director of Institutional Advancement, Directors of Development (one-Chicago, one-Vancouver), a Manager of Donor Relations, a Manager of Institutional Grants and a Manager of Advancement Services. Once appointed, the Vice President will take part in hiring two Directors of Development. The Vice President serves on the University’s 10-member Senior Team and the 21-member University Cabinet.

One of Adler’s fundraising opportunities is to grow philanthropy through individual giving, particularly in the Vancouver location where most higher education institutions are public and individual private giving is still relatively new. Another is to successfully launch a comprehensive campaign that will address programmatic and infrastructure needs.
