The Adler School of Professional Psychology has been awarded the Military Friendly School® designation from G.I. Jobs, a leading magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The magazine’s 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the United States that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students, and ensure their success on campus.
The 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 schools nationwide. Survey results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based on weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs with assistance from an academic advisory board of educators from schools across the country.

The Adler School maintains a long record of active involvement with and for its students who are active military personnel, veterans and civilians who support the military.
- The Adler School has offered coursework focused on military psychology for years, and since 2011 offers a Military Clinical Psychology track within its Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) program—the first of its kind outside the U.S. government’s military medical school.
- Adler School students are highly active in the School’s student organization established in 2009 for military psychology, advised by faculty member Joseph E. Troiani, Ph.D., C.A.D.C., a recently retired Navy commander.
- Faculty members are highly involved. By invitation of the U.S. Army Medical Command, Adler School faculty members have participated in the All Corps Educator Tour of Fort Sam Houston, Texas. By invitation of the U.S. Navy Clinical Psychology Program, faculty also have taken part in the Educators Medical VIP Visit to the Naval Medical Center San Diego.
- Faculty and students actively organize ongoing campus and external programs and initiatives, and serves as spokespersons, calling attention to the need for psychological health, services, and well-being of military populations and their families. For example, faculty and U.S. military veterans from the Adler School have led panel discussions on women and the impact of military combat following presentations of “A Dramatic Reading of Scenes from Sophocles’ AJAX—The Female Warrior Program,” presented by Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and Rivendell Theatre Ensemble in association with Theater of War.
