Our Educational Programs and Life Skills Training
Restorative Practices teaches you about civic commitment and builds awareness of your behavior’s impact on the community. It emphasizes the values of democratic participation, inclusion, and stewardship. Restorative Practices typically involves the community and the affected and responsible parties for a more holistic and collaborative repair method. Success is measured by how much harm is repaired or prevented. This approach has been effectively employed in higher education institutions nationwide when violations of campus honor codes and policies have occurred.
Student Appeals Court
The Student Appeals Court hears discipline appeals regarding violations against the Student Code of Honor (The Liberty Way). The Court does not re-hear a case to find a student “responsible” or “not responsible.” Disciplinary appeals are granted when requests meet one of the bases of appeals outlined by the Student Appeals Court.
The court meets from 10:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. on Mondays.
Choices is an educational program with three components:
- Life Values Inventory
- In-person teaching and discussion
- Final written assignment
During the class, facilitators will help each participant consider the relationship between their values, purpose, and decision-making. You will also discuss the impact your choices have on yourself, your relationships, and the groups you represent. Each topic will be considered from a biblical worldview perspective.

Boundaries In Life
We are created in the image of God with the responsibility for certain roles.
Boundaries helps us understand and take ownership of what our roles are and identify what our roles are not. Confusion about what is ours and what is not reveals a problem with boundaries.
This course aims to help you understand what boundaries are, what they protect, how they are developed, and how to use them to become who God has called you to be.

Life & Godliness
The issues of our time are complicated, straining our relationships and burdening our minds. But God tells us that he has “granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3). Christians can trust that God’s Word speaks to the trending topics of our time. Join the Office of Community Life for Life + Godliness, where we will confront cultural norms with biblical truths!
