What is Shepherd?
Shepherd is a student enrichment initiative specifically designed to connect LCU students with campus resources. The purpose is for Faculty, Staff, Students and Parents to refer students for assistance who appear to have difficulties academically, socially or with issues of a more personal nature. Shepherd provides an opportunity for the entire LCU campus community to partner in helping students in need. This means anyone connected with the LCU campus can utilize Shepherd.
