The winner of the 2015 Provost Pillar Award is Dr. Diane Adams. Dr. Adams has been with Alliant International University since 1989 and is presently an associate professor with the California School of Professional Psychology's clinical psychology PsyD program in San Francisco. Dr. Adams is one of the founders of Alliant’s I-MERIT program, having participated in the development and naming of the MERIT Institute for CSPP in 1991. She has recently co-authored the book Making Our Voices Heard—Women of Color in Academia. For many years, Dr. Adams has also been a multicultural ambassador on behalf of Alliant to many local, state and national organizations.

Alliant's mission is based on four pillars: competency-based professional training, multicultural and international competence, applied research and scholarship and community engagement. In order to recognize distinguished work in these four areas by faculty, students or Alliant staff, the annual university-wide Provost’s Pillar Award was created. Each year, we give an award for work done in at least one of the pillars. This year’s award is in the area of multicultural and international competence.

Congratulations Dr. Adams!
