Chancellor’s Bio

Dr. RiekemanDr. Guy F. Riekeman
Chancellor, Life University

Guy F. Riekeman, D.C. is a second generation chiropractor who graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1972. He became a successful chiropractor and businessman creating companies and seminar programs to improve chiropractic practice and facilitate personal growth.

After years in the field, Dr. Riekeman decided to shift his energy and focus to education. He went on to become Chancellor of Palmer College of Chiropractic before becoming the fourth President of Life University in 2004. In 2017, he was appointed the University’s first Chancellor. As an educator and leader, he extols the message to “Make Your Life Extraordinary” and challenges everyone to strive for excellence, both in the classroom and in life.

As a leader in the chiropractic profession, Dr. Riekeman works non-stop to keep the public and his fellow leaders in healthcare informed of important issues in Chiropractic, Vitalism and wellness to create a greater appreciation of the shift from an authoritarian “sickness care” system to a vitalistic partnership approach to health and wellness.

For decades, he has organized efforts to advance personal integrity and has worked tirelessly through educational programs and thousands of personal presentations to promote a new attitude and approach to healthcare and personal responsibility.

Under his leadership as both President and Chancellor, Dr. Riekeman has guided Life University to become the largest single campus chiropractic college in the world. His leadership created the 20/20 Vision, a multi-year, multi-phase initiative transforming Life University into a modern college campus with all the old-world values of education.
