Our Vision: An inclusive world empowered by Alliant alumni.
Alliant is committed to excellence in four areas:
Education for Professional Practice
Alliant’s educational programs are designed to give students the knowledge, skills, and ethical values they need to serve and lead effectively in a variety of professional settings. Alliant graduates are expected to achieve mastery of a body of knowledge and be able to apply that knowledge in professional practice in order to achieve desired, and beneficial outcomes.
Scholarship in the Alliant context includes the discovery of new knowledge; the discovery of new applications of knowledge to solve practical problems; the integration of knowledge in new ways; and innovation in teaching knowledge and professional competencies.
Multicultural and International Competence
Alliant is an inclusive institution committed to serving diverse populations around the world by preparing professionals to work effectively across cultural and national boundaries, by increasing the number of professionals working in underserved areas, and by understanding and responding to the needs of diverse communities.
Alliant’s faculty, students, alumni, and staff are dedicated to making a positive difference in the world through professional education and practice. We measure the success of our university in part by the impact we have—both directly and indirectly—on the welfare of individuals, families, organizations, and communities.
