ONE OF THE FOUR PILLARS OF ALLIANT MISSION.
It’s based on the belief that practicing professionals must be able to contribute to the needs and interests of the communities in which they work and make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, schools, organizations, companies and nations which comprise them. That philosophy goes hand-in-hand with Alliant’s style of teaching which marries academic learning with mentored field practice.
ALLIANT STUDENTS AND FACULTY “LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY”.
Students are encouraged, and in many programs required, to engage in community-based projects and services during their training while at Alliant. In addition to benefiting their community, these projects train our students to solve real world, contemporary and significant problems in today’s multicultural world. At Alliant, students start to make important contributions to their community, which in many cases, continue long after graduation. Similarly, faculty, through their mentoring and training relationship with students, are able to remain actively involved in research and practice that serves the communities in which Alliant resides.
Alliant’s consulting centers and CSOE’s school partnerships are examples of how Alliant “lives in the community” – everyday.
