The Mission Of Life University:
Our Vision for Life University:
From its founding in 1974 as a college of chiropractic, Life University has embraced the idea that humans are spiritual beings whose lives are directed by universal laws including the natural, vitalistic, innate ability to develop, heal and adapt as long as the body is kept free of interferences. Our approach has been to graduate highly skilled chiropractors that can correct those interferences and can educate their patients to accept responsibility for their own good health.
Today that vision of Life University is sustained in its chiropractic, undergraduate, and masters programs, which set the standard of excellence in contemporary health care education. A participatory learning environment develops eight core proficiencies through contemporary, proven techniques that encourage optimal performance and lifelong intellectual growth.
