Our mission, as a distinctly Christian medical school, is to glorify God through the provision of quality medical care by developing osteopathic physicians to serve those in need.

  • Liberty University does not engage in unlawful discrimination or harassment because of race, color, ancestry, religion, age, sex, national origin, pregnancy or childbirth, disability or military veteran status in its educational programs and activities. Liberty University maintains its Christian mission and reserves its right to discriminate on the basis of religion to the extent that applicable law respects its right to act in furtherance of its religious objectives. Specifically, the College of Osteopathic Medicine furthers the University’s religious mission by using religion-based criteria in hiring. Although the College of Osteopathic Medicine does not use religion-based criteria in student admissions, its students are expected to abide by its Code of Conduct.

    The College of Osteopathic Medicine accepts the teaching of the traditional biblical view with regard to sexual conduct outside a biblically ordained marriage between a natural-born man and a natural-born woman, which is incorporated into its Code of Conduct. Consistent with those teachings, the College of Osteopathic Medicine does not discriminate solely on the basis of an individual’s professed sexual orientation, but only with regard to accompanying sexual conduct or other actions that undermine essential elements of the University’s Christian mission.

    The College of Osteopathic Medicine also takes into account personal history and fitness to practice medicine in its admissions and retention decisions. Specifically, the College of Osteopathic Medicine requires compliance with the Technical Standards to be qualified for its programs; however, qualified students have the opportunity to request accommodations and any decisions based on failure to meet its standards can be appealed.

    The following persons have been designated to coordinate Liberty University’s compliance with certain anti-discrimination laws: Coordinator of LU Online Disability Accommodation Support at (434) 592-5417 or luoodas@liberty.edu; Director of Disability Accommodation Support (Residential) at (434) 582-2159 or odas@liberty.edu; Executive Director of Title IX at (434) 592-4999 or TitleIX@liberty.edu.
