Alliant Celebrates 2014 San Diego and Irvine Commencement

2013 San Diego and Irvine Commencement Student Speaker

On May 23, we will join the graduating students from our San Diego and Irvine campuses in celebrating their achievements during Alliant’s 2014 Commencement ceremony. Nearly 500 undergraduate and graduate students representing more than 20 countries will enjoy this opportunity to share their accomplishments with family, friends, and faculty members.

Students will receive degrees in the disciplines of psychology and mental health, education, business and management, and forensic studies. More than 20 awards will be presented for outstanding degrees at all levels, plus the Dorothy L. Harris Award for Women and F. Joseph Mcguigan Research Award.

We’re pleased to have Dr. Louise Kelly as this year’s Commencement speaker. Dr. Kelly, who holds a PhD in Strategic Management from Concordia University, was voted Outstanding Professor at California School of Management & Leadership in 2013. Under her faculty leadership, Alliant’s chapter of the National Executive Board of the Academy of Management’s Sigma Iota Epsilon fraternity—which is dedicated to excellence and ethics in business as a professional practice—won chapter of the year two years in a row. Dr. Kelly is a co-founder of GlobalMind Center for Strategic Consulting, and her international scholarship and publications have led to her designation as an Outstanding Scholar by the US federal government.

We look forward to this day of shared pride as we celebrate the hard work, dedication, and outstanding accomplishments of our graduating students!

Commencement for the San Diego and Irvine campuses is scheduled for Friday, May 23, 2014 at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in San Diego. The processional will begin at 10:30 a.m., and the ceremony will begin at 11 a.m.
