Cleveland Chiropractic College The Cleveland Chiropractic College multicampus system is known primarily for its Doctor of Chiropractic degree program, but offers other educational options in the health sciences. The college was started by one of the first families of chiropractic and has locations in Kansas City and Los Angeles. It is the only chiropractic institution in the nation still under the leadership of a founding family member.[1]

Cleveland Chiropractic College-Kansas City is located at 10850 Lowell Ave, Overland Park, Kansas 66210. The college has been in operation in Kansas City area since 1922 and has been at its current location since 2008.[citation needed]

The multicampus Cleveland Chiropractic College system has been providing health care education for more than 85 years.[citation needed]

In 1922, Dr. C.S. Cleveland Sr. and Dr. Ruth R. Cleveland, husband and wife started Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City with three students. As the next generation of doctors of chiropractic, their son, Carl Jr., and his wife, Mildred Allison, assisted in the growth of the profession and the College. Ratledge College was founded in 1908 in Guthrie, Oklahoma,[citation needed] and moved to Los Angeles, California in 1911.[citation needed] It came under the leadership of the Cleveland family in 1950 and was renamed Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles in 1955.[2]

Today, the grandson of the founders, Dr. Carl S. Cleveland III, is continuing the tradition as president of the multicampus Cleveland Chiropractic College system. A fifth generation chiropractor, Dr. Ashley Cleveland, serves as multicampus provost.[citation needed]

On March 3rd, Cleveland Chiropractic College system president, Dr. Carl Cleveland III, announced the decision of the Board of Trustees to cease operations at Cleveland Chiropractic College-Los Angeles in 2011. Both students and faculty were not informed in advanced while a deal was made with SCUHS to accept all CCCLA students.[citation needed]

In the process of closing down the campus the school has offered a "Teach out" program for the Chiropractic students, but currently offers no way for their students enrolled in the dual Chiropractic/Bachelors degree program to finish their degree's on time or budget without relocating to Kansas City, Leaving many students with huge loans and an unfinished degree.
