Columbia University NYC
In 1929 Adler would lecture as an adjunct faculty member in adult education and Columbia's medical school would also allow him a visiting professorship to discuss his work. In 1930 he directed a child-guidance clinic and also lectured at the school's Institute of Arts and Sciences. Professor Tilney proposed Adler for permanent appointment but psychoanalysts opposed Freud's longtime foe. Adler resigned his position in February 1930 and closed his clinic.

Adler offered a similar series of evening lectures at Community Church in NYC, a Unitarian Congregation headed by John Haynes Holmes (a founder of both the ACLU and the NAACP). The church took over Adler's clinic when he withdrew from Columbia University.
