The Alliant International University Board of Trustees and University president, Dr. Geoffrey Cox, have agreed to begin a transition to new leadership for the University.   A national search for Alliant's next president will begin immediately after the New Year with the goal of appointing someone to the permanent position during the course of the year.

Dr. Cox will take a sabbatical during the 2016 spring semester and will leave the University at the end of the academic year.

The Board has appointed Mr. Andy Vaughn as Interim President.  Mr. Vaughn currently serves as Senior Vice President for Marketing and Student Experience.  Before coming to Alliant he was President and CEO of Trident University.

The Board of Trustees expressed appreciation for Dr. Cox's dedication and leadership over the past 11 years.
