Logan University has enrolled its largest incoming class in a decade as 142 students the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) program began first-trimester classes on September 6, 2017. An additional 210 students enrolled in the College of Health Sciences programs, including Doctorate of Health Professions Education; and Master of Science degrees in Health Informatics, Nutrition and Human Performance, and Sports Science and Rehabilitation; and Bachelor of Science degrees in Life Science and Human Biology.
Individuals from 25 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago constitute the incoming DC class and will call St. Louis home for much of the next four years, or 10 trimesters. Logan’s DC curriculum involves intense study of evidence-informed, outcome-based chiropractic health care, with many hours of hands-on clinical experience incorporated throughout.
In addition, the University announced that one student with the highest grade point average at the end of the first trimester will earn a scholarship for the remaining 9 trimesters of the DC program.
“We are impressed with the academic and personal skills of these incoming students,” says Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, Logan University President. “We are excited to motivate them even further and reward exceptional progress.”
Logan’s College of Health Sciences is growing rapidly, offering online and face-to-face curriculum for undergraduate degrees in biology and life sciences, as well as Doctorate of Health Professions Education; and Master of Science degrees in Health Informatics, Nutrition and Human Performance, and Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Incoming enrollment in these degree pathways topped 210 and includes students in South Korea, Puerto Rico and Armed Forces Pacific.
“The interest in these degrees confirms our belief that health science careers are in high demand,” says Kimberly Paddock-O’Reilly, DHEd, MSW, Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs. “Logan is uniquely positioned to build on its heritage of chiropractic research and education and create health degrees that can both complement the Doctor of Chiropractic or stand-alone to support a meaningful career.”
Dear Logan community,
Not far from our campus, the verdict of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was announced. There has been much speculation on whether protests will take place following the announcement and we can only hope that these freedoms of expression remain peaceful and productive without endangering the lives of others.
It is important for the entire Logan community to know that it is our mission to maintain the safety and wellbeing of individuals on campus at all times. We recognize that the feelings and emotions tied to this case and those like it are valid. We respect the right for people to demonstrate, including on campus, however, individuals involved in hate speech, violence or disrupting peaceful demonstration will not be tolerated.
We are proud that the Logan community is built of diverse individuals who uphold our values of respect, compassion and integrity. We recognize the fact that as much as we have advanced as a society, there is still needed progress. This need for progress leads to a need to engage in meaningful, productive dialogue; the need to create safe spaces where those dialogues can be heard and respected. Civil discourse can be a positive catalyst, but never violence. We welcome the opportunity where we can converse about tolerance, diversity and social justice. Consistent with our institutional values, we respect your right to do so.
Logan community members looking for additional support can reach out to Jennifer Starks, Student Care Manager, in Office 119, at 636-230-1970 or at Jennifer.Starks@logan.edu.
