Palm Beach Atlantic University is developing online versions of two of its popular degree programs for adult students -- a Master of Science in Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Provost Dr. Joseph A. Kloba said that an online course format provides working, adult students greater access to further their education while continuing their employment and family obligations. Dr. Kloba noted that the leadership degree would be the first online graduate program to be offered at PBA. Both degree programs are currently offered in the traditional classroom format at Palm Beach Atlantic’s campuses in West Palm Beach and Orlando.

Nominations for the 2013 Palm Beach Atlantic University Distinguished Alumni Awards Program are being accepted until May 1. The Awards Program is designed to recognize professional achievement and/or distinguished service to PBA and the community.

Invoking the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Palm Beach Atlantic University commencement speaker and King scholar Dr. Terriel Byrd challenged graduates on Saturday to live in accordance with the University's theme for this academic year, Engagement Empowers. Dr. Byrd, who serves as professor of urban Christian ministry and coordinator of the evening ministry program at PBA, said that according to Dr. King, there are three dimensions of any complete life: length, breadth and height. "To truly be empowered, you must be engaged on three levels," Dr. Byrd told the nearly 200 graduates and the hundreds of family members, friends and guests in attendance. The first dimension of life involves one’s own well-being, he said. "You can’t love others unless you love yourself," Dr. Byrd said. "This is the dimension of life in which individuals are concerned with developing inner power, with which one pursues the personal ends and ambitions."
