For the second annual LCU and Lanier Theological Library lecture, LCU Foundation hosted Dr. Alister McGrath, renowned theologian, C.S. Lewis scholar and prolific writer. If you missed his fascinating lecture, entitled “C.S. Lewis and the Postmodern Generation: His Message 50 Years Later”, you can watch a recording of it here.
How we approach leadership is more critical now than ever before, which is why LCU Foundation launched the Jones Leadership Center in 2012. This center will continue the legacy of influential leadership that Dr. Ken Jones established as LCU president, and will create opportunities for LCU to connect to the local community.
Through LCU Foundation initiatives, $100,000 was raised to allow LCU Athletics to apply for NCAA Division II. We were accepted into NCAA Div. II candidacy and are now in the three-year transition phase. Funds raised from the Duck Dynasty event will help us begin that process by providing restrooms and lighting for the soccer field and replacing the sound system in the Rip Griffin Center.
Because enrollment in the sciences has increased rapidly in recent years, we have outgrown our current classrooms and buildings. The new science building will house staff and classrooms in one location, and the updated facilities and equipment will take LCU’s science program to the next level.
An ongoing initiative for LCU Foundation has been the development of the partnership program between LCU Department of Nursing and Covenant School of Nursing. To accommodate the growing partnership, we are raising funds for a new center for nursing education on LCU’s campus.
LCU Foundation is supporting LCU’s commitment to leadership through the launch of the Jones Leadership Center. We are also working to expand LCU’s existing Washington, D.C. internship program and to provide scholarships for faculty and student research and conferences.
LCU Athletics was accepted into NCAA Div. II candidacy last year, and we are now in the three-year process of transitioning all eleven varsity athletic programs from NAIA to NCAA. The next step in the transition is ensuring that our facilities and equipment meet NCAA standards.
