Winter Greetings DAL Students!

February 15, 2016

From the desk of Dr. Joshua Black, Executive Director of the Division of Adult Learning

We hope that you are enjoying this beautiful time of year, especially if you like snow like me! We are constantly trying to improve our programs and services that we offer to Lee University Online and Charlotte Center students. The following are some updates of what has been going on for the past few months and what is to come:

Record Enrollment

We are celebrating DAL’s enrollment growth again with a new record of 716 students in Session C. We will have a large number of new students joining in Session D as our spring enrollment continues to break records as we grow. The large numbers are very impressive too since 59 students from the division completed their degrees and graduated in December 2015. Over 125 DAL students completed their degrees last year thought Lee’s distance programs. We are looking forward to seeing you complete your’s soon too!

New Graduate Programs Offered Online

In fall 2015, Lee University launched an online version of the MBA program that piloted a 7-week model of courses. The program and 7-week model has been working so successfully that additional graduate programs online will utilize this same model. Utilizing 7 weeks instead of 8-week courses provides an additional 6 weeks of break through the year!

This summer, Lee will be launching the MS in Marriage & Family Studies program online. This program will also utilize the 7-week course model. For more information on either of these graduate programs, please contact the DAL Enrollment Services Department.

Writing Lab and Library Services Online

Did you know that Lee offers a free Writing Lab for all distance students that is available to you all year long? Are you also aware the Lee has a distance librarian that is available to you too? The calendar and appointment request site for the writing lab is available in Portico. You can see a video on how to access the writing lab at

The Library Services for your specific location can be accessed by clicking the buttons below.


Lee is continuing to increase the number of campus events that are live streamed for you to join in on the event over the web. In Moodle, students and faculty can now see a link and a picture of the Lee Chapel inside of their course that leads them to Lee University’s “Video-on-Demand” page. Most chapel services, including fall and spring convocation, are now being live streamed. Music concerts, sporting events, and other campus events have also been streamed. Student and faculty feedback has been strong thus far in support of increasing the university’s streamed offerings. Please join us on the live stream!

We are very thankful that you are a Lee student at this amazing Christ-centered university.

May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Division of Adult Learning

The Division of Adult Learning’s non-traditional approach feeds qualified students’ natural curiosity through online discussion, personal reflection, case studies, and text-driven contemplation. Highly qualified Lee University professors lead online and onsite courses that stimulate students’ intellectual growth, promote their spiritual development, and equip them for professional success.
