Dear LABI Community;
In light of recommendations by Local, State, and Federal public officials/agencies, and with the best interest of the LABI community in mind, LABI College has created an eight week plan for the remainder of the spring semester beginning on March 23rd.
In-classroom meetings will be replaced with long-distance, remote teaching alternatives. LABI faculty will be utilizing Populi, Zoom, and/or other platforms to communicate assignments and information for the remainder of the semester. Students should expect instructions from professors regarding expectations for these next eight weeks of the semester. LABI is following proper guidelines given by our accreditors, the Association for Biblical Higher Education, and our actions satisfy their accreditation standards. The quality of education will not change, and all course learning objectives will remain aligned to our program learning objectives.Ministerial practicum courses and expectations are still in affect.
