Life University Receives Full SACS Accreditation

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, (SACS) has granted Life University full accreditation. This statement issued December 7, 2004 comes on the heels of CCE's delay of a final decision. SACS is a regional accrediting agency that accredits schools and is vital for student loans and Life University’s very existence.

Had Life not been granted SACS accreditation, the speculation is that the school may have closed. With this move SACS moved Life from the status of “probation” to a fully accredited position. This decision also shows that Life has made tremendous academic strides and seems to suggest that CCE will have no real basis for any other decision other than to re-issue full accredited status when they make their decision in early 2005.

Holiday Message from Now You Know

All of us at Now You Know wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday season. Over the past year Now You Know has grown tremendously. We have been fortunate to have added hundreds of offices to our services and have added many features to our services. We have also listened to our subscribers and added new features and content that subscribers have requested. These new features have greatly enhanced the services we offer.

More importantly we have reached more of the general public than ever before. Literally hundreds of thousands of consumers now regularly read the educational content we provide. Through the distribution of the Now You Know Newsletter, and the hits on our subscriber’s websites, we presently reach more people with chiropractic educational material than any other source in chiropractic each month. For this we are very grateful. For our mission is not just to serve chiropractors, but more importantly to educate the public on the wonders of chiropractic.

In the coming year we plan to continue to expand our services and educational content. We will be adding cutting edge features and content that were only a faint hope just a few years ago. We pledge to continue to improve our unparalleled level of service, and keep these services affordable for all practitioners. We feel privileged to serve those of you who have our services, and look forward to service those who will be joining us in the coming year.

Again, from our Now You Know family to yours, Happy Holidays!
