– Dr. Joe Ibe –
As the Alumni Relations Office continues to grow in our experiences and our potential, we never want to lose sight of creating an environment that will encourage the past members of Life West to be excited for the opportunities that are in store for our alma mater. Over the past year I have had a chance to meet and listen to many alumni and friends. The overwhelming response has been – I want to give back, how can I contribute?
For those who can contribute, see page 19 for the QR code and ways to make a donation. For those where financial contributions are not an option at the current time, we are designing new and innovative ways for us to engage with one another until it is. As an alum, we’re here to offer you the support that comes along with being a graduate from our prestigious institution.
Many of these new offerings will come through the Career Services Center, an extension of the alumni office. This center has a singular objective – offer professional development services for our graduates and soon to be graduates. We have the resources you need to help you decide how to make your next moves your best ones. For example, our career center’s Mentoring Program is working to pair lower quarter students with practicing DC’s in the field. By shadowing you in practice, they begin to understand what it’s like to build a practice and run a business. They see their future first hand.
As we have gained a new Executive Director of Institutional Advancement in Mr. Touré Carter, we’ve also gained a new level of rejuvenation and excitement with the amazing things we have in store for our alumni and anyone else in the Life West family. We aim to create a lasting relationship with alumni and friends of the college to propel Life West and the chiropractic community forward.
I hope to be able to meet with you all, on a one-by-one basis, for you to be able to get to know how the Office of Alumni Relations, in tandem with the Institutional Advancement department, can help be an asset to you and your chiropractic journey. Together, we can all continue to help build Life West into the dynasty we know that it can be. I would love to hear about your journey after Life West and what milestones have occurred in your life since you graduated.
