Palmer Approved to Open Florida Campus
On Sept. 20, the Palmer Chiropractic University System Board of Trustees held a special teleconference meeting and gave final approval to a Palmer college in Port Orange, Fla. Following that meeting and an appearance Sept. 25 before the Florida State Commission for Independent Education, the Palmer Chiropractic University System was awarded Level 1 provisional licensure. The licensure is granted for a period of up to 12 months and means Palmer may begin advertising, recruiting, enrolling students, collecting tuition and fees and holding classes at its Port Orange campus.
"This level of licensure is a green light for us to proceed with recruitment and accelerate our facilities plans for Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida in Port Orange," said Palmer Chiropractic University System Chancellor Michael E. Crawford. "We are gratified by this vote of confidence by the Florida Commission, and we are proceeding full speed ahead with plans to begin matriculating students as early as October 2002."
Level 1 provisional licensure is the second step in the Florida licensure progression, with the next step being Level 2 and then finally Regular licensure. "Palmer will work with the Florida Commission to achieve subsequent licensure levels on a timely basis," added Douglas Hoyle, Ph.D., executive assistant to the Chancellor. "We will also be providing regular progress reports to the commission and expect site visits. This is all part of the normal licensure process in Florida."
While building the permanent campus in Port Orange, which is well along in planning, Palmer officials have plans in place to house the new college in temporary facilities on or near the land designated by the city of Port Orange for the permanent campus for the first nine to 12 months of operation.
According to the current plan, permanent campus facilities will be available for use by the summer of 2003.
"We are tremendously excited to have achieved this licensure milestone," said Palmer President Guy F. Riekeman, D.C. "We are pleased to be well on our way to opening our doors in Port Orange by October 2002 and building a chiropractic campus from the ground up. We’re also proud of the fact that this college will be intensely educating students in the latest science, technique, clinical, business management principles, and of course the core principles of chiropractic."
