Student Council

The Life University Student Council acts as the liaison between students and the administration. The role of the Student Council is to listen to the student body and relay questions and concerns to the appropriate parties.

Council member positions are elected annually in January, and officers can come from the chiropractic, undergraduate or master’s programs. Student Council meetings are held four times per quarter and are open to the general student population. These meetings are an excellent way to get involved at Life University. Students who participate enjoy a real sense of camaraderie and great pride in being part of LIFE’s bigger picture.

Let's Talk

Let’s Talk is a quarterly tradition started by the Student Council to initiate and encourage continued communication among students, faculty, staff and administrators. It is typically held on Tuesday of Week 7 and is run in a “town hall” format with an open forum for any questions, comments and suggestions that students may have.

Let’s Talk is historically attended by the President, Provost, Vice Presidents, Student Services, College Deans, Heads of Clinics, the IT Department, Director of Campus Safety, Cafe services, Library Directors, Athletic Director and more. The students’ voices are listened to and well-heard at Let’s Talk, and all parties value the discussion and dialogue that come out of this tradition.

Let’s Talk maintains a course on Blackboard. As a student, you are automatically enrolled in this course.
