Life Chiropractic College West (LCCW) announced the opening of a second campus located at Bellevue University in Bellevue, Neb. Earlier today, the Nebraska Post-Secondary Coordinating Commission approved Life Chiropractic College West’s application for the Doctor of Chiropractic program to be delivered in Nebraska.
Bellevue University sits on a sprawling 46-acre campus located in the heart of the Omaha metropolitan area, home to more than a million people and a thriving health care industry. This development enables Life Chiropractic College West to stay true to its mission of offering exceptional chiropractic education to students from across North America and the world.
The Doctor of Chiropractic program offered at Bellevue will be identical to Life Chiropractic College West’s main campus in Hayward, Calif., and will follow the same rigorous academic initiatives and Clinically Inspired Learning Curriculum that has made Life Chiropractic College West one of the most respected chiropractic colleges in the world. Opening in the fall of 2023, students will have access to state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained faculty, and an inspired learning environment that produces practice-ready chiropractors.
Regarding the relationship between both institutions, Dr. Ron Oberstein, president of Life Chiropractic College West, said “This collaboration is a game changer because it expands opportunities for the chiropractic profession in the Midwest, and I want to thank Dr. Mary Hawkins, president, and Jim Nekuda, vice president of strategic partnerships at Bellevue University, and Dr. Marilyn Al-Hassan, chief strategy officer, and Dr. Scott Donaldson, provost at LCCW, and their respective teams for their commitment in supporting our goal of bringing the Life Chiropractic College West brand of chiropractic education to students in Nebraska and the surrounding states.”
Oberstein went on to say; “We know that increasing the population of chiropractic doctors creates the potential to transform lives and communities, and by expanding our reach and providing more students with greater access to chiropractic education, we are helping to ensure that the future of chiropractic is brighter than ever.”
President of Bellevue University, Dr. Mary Hawkins, is excited with Life Chiropractic College West’s expansion because of the access it creates.
“This relationship allows Bellevue University to provide students in the region with educational choices that simply weren’t available to them previously,” she said. “Individual learners and communities across the country will benefit thanks to Life Chiropractic College West’s presence in the Midwest.”
The LCCW Board of Regents Chairperson, Dr. Jimmy Nanda, praised the expansion as a testament to the college’s commitment to excellence in chiropractic education.
“Life Chiropractic College West has a long-standing tradition of providing exemplary chiropractic education to students from around the world,” said Nanda. “The expansion at Bellevue University is a natural next step for us, as we seek to expand our reach and provide more students with access to the best possible education to become successful chiropractors.
Nanda went on to express his gratitude for the hard work it took to bring the second campus to fruition.
“We are incredibly proud of Dr. Oberstein and his team for their hard work and unwavering commitment to being leaders in chiropractic education. This expansion to Bellevue University is a testament to their courage and dedication to our mission.”
