Our Priorities

student raising hand

Mental Health Advocacy

Preparing generations of mental health practitioners is only one step in ensuring that everyone who needs help can get it. One of the greatest societal obstacles to mental health is the scourge of stigma. Through initiatives like The Mind Collective, in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, we pair education with compassion in order to foster a community in which open dialogue about mental health reduces stigma and encourages people to seek help when they need it.
 

Educational Leadership and Management

Equity in Education

We believe that every child deserves a quality education, no matter their zip code. Through our In Service Academy (ISA), we address one of the greatest causes of the national teacher shortage crisis and a fundamental barrier to ensuring that every classroom has a qualified teacher at the helm: attrition. The Academy provides ongoing professional development and support for each alumnus of our teaching programs so they can receive the same support they offer their students and continue to make their impact in the classroom.

Social Justice

We continue our legacy of dedication to social justice and service to underrepresented and marginalized communities through initiatives like our Immigration Asylum Clinic. With support from the Alliant Educational Foundation, our California School of Professional Psychology has partnered with our San Francisco Law School (SFLS) to provide free psychological and legal services to asylum seekers.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In order to support our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and actively dismantling persistent veiled and visible systemic racism, we have launched the Alliant Board of Trustees Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The Committee enshrines our DEI philosophies, initiatives, and actions within our organizational DNA and holds each and every member of our community accountable, at the highest levels, to commitment to our institutional values, pillars, mission, and vision—all of which prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion.
