Congratulations future Alliant graduates!

The completion of your degree is not only a milestone worth celebrating, it marks the beginning of your career of impact as an Alliant Alum. Commencement recognizes and celebrates students’ successful completion of their academic programs. Many students, as well as their family and friends, participate in the ceremony as a rite of passage that commemorates the achievement of a higher education degree.

Please let us know you plan on attending the virtual commencement ceremony, by registering no later than April 29, 2023.

Congratulations, and we look forward to celebrating the many accomplishments of our 2023 graduates.

Apply to participate in Voices of Diversity

For many years the Alliant has included a multicultural event, “Voices of Diversity” in which a passage from the Alliant mission statement is spoken in the native languages of some members of the graduating class. We are delighted to continue this tradition. If you are interested in participating in the 2023 Voices of Diversity, please submit the Voices of Diversity form no later than March 17, 2023. You would need to translate and then read the following as part of the ceremony “Alliant’s mission is to prepare students for professional careers of service and leadership, and promote the discovery and application of knowledge to improve the lives of people in diverse cultures and communities around the world”.

If you are interested, please submit the Voices of Diversity Form.
