Ann Liston Commencement Speaker

December 2017 Commencement Brunch

Regents Hall, Lewis Towers, 111 E. Pearson

Please join us for a celebratory brunch to honor the December 2017 graduates of Loyola University Chicago's School of Communication.

This fall's commencement speaker is Loyola University alumna Ann Liston, the co-founding partner of AL Media, a media and strategic communications consulting firm recognized nationally for its award-winning creative and breakthrough victories. Under Ann’s leadership, AL Media has taken on some of the highest profile, against-the-odds challenges in electoral, legislative and public affairs campaigns and won. 

Along with serving on the senior strategy team for President Obama's re-election, Ann’s firm has helped elect 2 Presidents of the United States, 11 U.S. Senators, 35 members of Congress, 18 statewide officeholders, and over 100 state and local elected officials. Ann has over 20 years of experience consulting on and managing top-level campaigns. Before becoming a partner at AL Media, Ann served in senior positions at EMILY's List, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the National Democratic Convention-Los Angeles, the National Democratic Institute (NDI), and the Washington, D.C. media firm, GMMB. 

To attend, please contact Events Coordinator Genevieve Buthod at gbuthod@luc.edu or (312)915-6972.

Students may bring up to two guests to the brunch. All December 2017 graduates are welcome to participate in the university commencement ceremonies in May 2018. A formal invitation will be sent to you early in 2018 through your LUC email, which is a lifetime email account.
