Five Schools. Four Pillars. One Mission.
1. Education for Professional Practice
Any profession has certain core skills or competencies that a practitioner must master to be able to practice successfully. The Alliant professional-practice educational model is designed to assure that students graduate fully equipped to make immediate, positive contributions to their communities and to their profession.
2. Applied Research and Scholarship
Conducting research and producing scholarly presentations and publications serve to assure that practicing professionals stay current with advancements in their fields. The Alliant approach to research is applied rather than theoretical, so that the scholarly activities which our students and faculty engage in have real-world utility and application
3. 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. The University strives to accomplish this by increasing the number of professionals working in underserved areas, and by understanding and responding to the needs of diverse communities. Among the important values of Alliant is a belief that all students should have an awareness of, respect for and curiosity about multicultural and international similarities and differences.
4. Community Engagement
The Alliant mission includes a fundamental commitment to community engagement—the belief that practicing professionals must be able to contribute to the needs and interests of the communities in which they work. As a result, students are encouraged, and in many programs required, to engage in community-based projects and services during their training while at Alliant. One of the important ways success is measured is by the impact our graduates have, both directly and indirectly, on the welfare of individuals, families, organizations and communities.
