Strategic Plan

In January 2013, Life Pacific College undertook its new effort redesigning a comprehensive strategic planning process. Effective planning requires a collaborative endeavor with many stakeholders. Ours included students, staff, faculty, Foursquare Church leaders, pastors, alumni, and community representatives. Following an intense 12 month-long process, the College Board of Trustees approved the revised mission, vision, and values statements, along with a comprehensive plan for five years duration presented by the strategic planning group and administrative council.

Voter Registration Information

Life Pacific College encourages students to register to vote.  As Christians, we recognize human government as an ordinance of divine appointment, and teach obedience to it as a sacred duty, within its legitimate sphere. We also have a responsibility to assure good government, and we exercise this responsibility when we vote.  Furthermore, the 1998 Higher Education Act requires all post-secondary institutions to make a good-faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to each degree or certificate-seeking student who attends classes on campus. The following information is provided to assist you in registering to vote either in California or in your home state.

In order to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years old at the time of the next election.  As a college student you may register either in California using your college residential address or at home using your permanent home address.  When completing your voter registration form please note that P.O. boxes are not permitted as your residential/home address.  If you live on-campus, list the address of the college as your home address and if you live off-campus use your off-campus street address.

California registration forms are available on-line at Forms are also available at post offices, libraries, city hall, or department of motor vehicle offices.
