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.

Clery Act 2014

Campus Security Report 2013

A Legislative History of the Clery Act
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act (Public Law 101–542) was signed into law by President Bush in 1990 and went into effect on Sept. 1, 1991. Title II of this act is known as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. This act amends the Higher Education Act of 1965(HEA) by adding campus crime statistics and reporting provisions for postsecondary institutions. It requires the disclosure of crime statistics for the most recent three years, as well as disclosure of the institution’s current security policies. Institutions are also required to issue timely warnings when necessary. All public and private Title IV eligible institutions must comply with the requirements of this act which is enforced by the U. S. Department of Education (ED).
