He has also worked as the Dean of Chiropractic at Northwestern Health Sciences University and as the Vice President for Academic Affairs at Logan College of Chiropractic. “I have been honored to serve the LIFE community,” says Dr. Scott. “From our forward-thinking programs to the commitment of our students, faculty and staff, Life University is truly an institution dedicated to social innovation.”

In May 2017, Dr. Scott was named the fifth President of Life University, succeeding former President Dr. Guy Riekeman, who assumed the title of Chancellor of Life University at that same time. “Dr. Scott has been a long time friend as well as a trusted colleague, says Dr. Riekeman. “I attempted to recruit him years ago because he was an emerging talent. Today, after working together for more than a decade, I can say I was correct. He is now at the top of his field, and Life University is enriched because of his contributions to education and our vision.”
