Parker University focuses on providing students with opportunities related to healthcare, specifically in the realm of chiropractic. Parker has two chiropractic wellness clinics in addition to their research institute. The research institute includes the Parker Seminars, the largest chiropractic seminar organization in the world, and the Parker SHARE products, which provides innovative products and current information on chiropractic wellness to professionals in the field.

The Doctor of Chiropractic program at Parker University prepares students for a career in chiropractic wellness, focusing on biology, chemistry and the physical sciences. “Parker University has a long tradition of providing opportunities to students interested in pursuing successful careers in service and healthcare through chiropractic,” says Dr. Brian McAulay, President of Parker University. “Everglades’ students who complete the Doctor of Chiropractic program are going to be a tremendous asset to patients and communities in need of dedicated and compassionate healthcare professionals.”

Both Everglades University and Parker University are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Everglades University offers students a well-rounded education in a variety of health-related fields. Fostering their students’ dedication to learning, Everglades is happy to give them this added opportunity. “We believe in fostering a collaborative environment in which student learning can flourish,” says Kristi Mollis, President of Everglades University. “This will make an excellent complement to Parker’s community-based programs.”

The AquaGrove will be the latest addition to the EU Sarasota outdoor Solar and Renewable Energy teaching Lab.

The AquaGrove is a solar operated system allowing people in remote and off the grid areas to grow fish and vegetables in a self  contained system.  EU Sarasota students will participate in a pilot program studying this system and comparing notes to develop optimum operating capacity as part of the BS/Alternative and Renewable Energy Degree program.

The AquaGrove is scheduled for installation in September 2017 in time for fall classes.

For the past 15 years, Kristi Mollis has served as the president and CEO of Everglades University, an accredited, private, not-for-profit university offering bachelor’s and master’s degree programs online and on-campus. She oversees performance, operations, and compliance at their five Florida-based campuses in Boca Raton, Sarasota, Tampa, and Orlando, as well as for their online division.

“It’s one of the most rewarding jobs,” she says. “I have a strong passion for inspiring others to discover their purpose and potential through education.”

That passion has always driven her to do more—more for the university, the people around her, and the greater community.

Leadership

President Kristi Mollis was recognized as Team Leader of the Year for ACCSC and later elected as a Commissioner for ACCSC.

CommunityKristi Mollis believes that the University’s impact extends far beyond its classroom walls. Each student that receives a bachelor’s or master’s degree there will someday go out into the world to apply it. That is why, when the University expanded its programs in 2012, it was important to Kristi Mollis to add programs that would potentially impact our community. “We added degree programs that we felt would significantly impact the community, such as Alternative and Renewable Energy Management and Crisis and Disaster Management,” says Mollis. The university is also committed to community service, working with organizations such as Junior Achievement, Boca Helping Hands, The Place of Hope, KIDS in Distress, and Habitat for Humanity.
