Dayton Art Institute Site of 2014 Antioch University PhD in Leadership and Change Commencement Ceremony

Yellow Springs, OH—Antioch University’s PhD in Leadership and Change, a nationally recognized doctoral program, has announced that the 2014 commencement ceremony will be held on Saturday, August 2, at the Dayton Art Institute’s NCR Renaissance Auditorium located at 456 Belmonte Park North, Dayton, OH. The program will confer degrees upon over 30 students, its largest graduating class to date. The ceremony will begin at 9:00 am.

“This is such an exciting time for the program. This is our 9th largest graduating class,” said Dr. Laurien Alexandre, program director. “Our commencement is a celebration of the culmination of our students’ hard work, dedication, persistence and accomplishments. They leave us as scholar-practitioners with a thorough understanding of leading change in their workplaces and communities.”

The continued growth of the PhD program necessitated moving the commencement ceremony from the auditorium at the Antioch University Midwest campus in Yellow Springs, OH. “We wanted to be sure that all graduates had no limit imposed on the number of guests they could invite to witness their important day, and given the numbers of alumni, students and friends of the program who also attend the event, we felt that we had outgrown the capacity of our former location. The Dayton Art Institute is a new and exciting venue for us,” Alexandre said.
