Message from the President

Congratulations Class of 2014

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Faculty and Staff and Alumni Association of Phillips Graduate Institute, I’d like to welcome you to the 2014 Commencement Ceremony.

This is a very special day for our graduates. Their decision to pursue an advanced degree takes vision and courage. It means giving up free time; long hours away from family and friends; and financial sacrifice and hardship. The tremendous dedication these students have shown is remarkable and has resulted in one of their greatest accomplishments. Family, friends and the Phillips community are here to celebrate their success.

Our Master’s students have taken a rigorous curriculum that combines theory and practice and prepares them as highly qualified professionals in a variety of fields. Their work in private practice, schools, businesses, community agencies and hospitals will transform individuals, families and communities.

Our Doctoral students have reached the highest level of academic achievement. Their demanding programs required in-depth studies and demonstration of professional competencies. Our Clinical Psychology students have studied the complexities of human behavior and our Organizational Management and Consulting students have learned about the impact of human behavior on business outcomes. All of these students have made the ultimate sacrifice to achieve their academic and professional dreams. They have devoted up to five years of intense studies and training and are ready to take their place in the fields of psychology or business. These students are the best of the best.

We know our graduates are prepared to bring about change in the world and will do so with the same devotion and dedication they brought to their studies. We are grateful to have been a part of their journey.

Please join the Phillips Graduate Institute Faculty and Staff, Alumni Association and Board of Trustees in congratulating the Class of 2014.


Yolanda J. Gorman, MBA, Ph.D.
President, Phillips Graduate Institute
