A Word from the Associate AD:

The primary mission for Academic Affairs for Athletics at Liberty University is to provide continuous academic, athletic, social, and spiritual development for each student athlete. Utilizing the expertise of our staff in collaboration with institutional programs at Liberty University, our student-athletes receive professional advising, career and academic skill development, tutoring, and mentoring services. Our program assists student-athletes in finding and maintaining a balance between the demands of athletics and academics while preparing them as socially responsible individuals for life after athletics.

Sincerely,
Kristie Beitz
