Alliant as a Public Benefit Corporation
At Alliant, we believe that advanced degrees and expertise are meaningless unless they are used as an instrument for public benefit and the greater good. That is why Alliant was the first standalone university to become a certified benefit corporation or B Corp.
B Corps are companies that provide a public benefit and embrace the highest levels of commitment to corporate social responsibility. B corps are certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
In 2015, Alliant joined the ranks of companies like Patagonia, Ben & Jerrys, and over 1,600 other companies from 42 countries that are seeking to redefine the meaning of success in business.
We are proud to be among those companies that are competing to not only be the best in the world, but the best for the world. We believe in using business as a force for good and education as a source for impact.
We are happy to announce that we recently went through the process of B Corp recertification, and renewed our commitment to public service.
We believe that education is the great equalizer and one of the most powerful tools at our disposal, but it is only when education is paired with purpose that we bear witness to its true power. At Alliant, we pride ourselves on arming the next generation with the tools they need to translate their education to public benefit, service to their communities, and a lasting impact. We take pride in being a certified B Corp.
