Welcome from the Vice President of Student Services
Dear Life University Student,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to those of you who are new members of our community and a welcome back to our students who are continuing their studies at Life University.
To make your transition into this academic year as successful and rewarding as possible, the Office of Student Services is pleased to provide you with this Student Handbook. College is a time of growth and discovery, and this handbook will introduce many of the different opportunities available to you at Life University. It also is an informative guide that will help you to learn more about our policies and your rights and responsibilities as a student here at Life University. You should also review the Life University Catalog and the Academic Quarterly for the most up-to-date information.
I hope that this academic year will prove to be a productive learning experience for you. I would invite you to experience intellectual discovery, participate in a variety of campus events, get involved in a recognized student organization and perhaps actively participate in community service. At Life University, we are concerned with the development of the whole person – not only the intellectual being. I hope that you will experience a transformational experience at LIFE that unlocks the potential that each of you share.
Please feel free to stop by the Office of Student Services or give us a call if you have any questions or concerns regarding life at LIFE! We will be happy to assist you or direct you to the correct office or individual who can address your specific concern. I wish you all the best for a safe, happy, healthy and productive year!
Marc P. Schneider, M.Ed., D.C., Vice President of Student Services
Welcome to Life University
You and I are in for exciting times here at LIFE. This institution you chose for your professional education is on the move. We continue moving toward our 2020 Vision, adding new programmatic offerings, building a premier faculty and staff, constructing new “green” facilities and organizing expanded student recreation and social activities. More dramatic change is on the way. This progress is driven by the Board of Trustees and the administration here at LIFE. Following is a key summary sentence from the Life University Strategic Plan:
With its vitalistic vision, clearly defined performance proficiencies and measurable criteria for success, a Life University education will produce leaders who exemplify humanistic values and, in a world where change is constant, provide innovative approaches to direct that change to elevate society and evolve its healthcare system.
Clearly, from the Board of Trustees to administrators, faculty and staff across our many diversified college programs, we have a clear vision of where we’re going. Our goal is peak performance while you’re here to equip you to be a peak performer when you enter your chosen career. We’re determined to help you develop your potential as a human being so that you can successfully manage the many personal and professional aspects of your life.
Get ready for a thrilling ride that results in both success and significance.
Rob Scott, D.C., Ph.D.
