The following Change Agents are the inaugural recipients of the University’s Alfred Adler Social Justice Award, which honors faculty, staff, and students for activism promoting Adlerian values.
“In this day and age, the idea of bridging social distance, of living out the true ideal of social interest is, indeed, revolutionary,” said Elena Quintana, co-executive director of the Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice. Quintana presented the award at Adler’s Annual Retreat in March. “Individuals working to advance social interest are, therefore, true, even if unintended, activists in our midst.”
