Vice President of Advancement
Michael, or "Mike" as he is known on campus, is LPC's very first Vice President of Advancement. Mike joined the LPC team on August 1, 2016, and concurrently serves as a member of the President's Cabinet and Administrative Council. His span-of-care includes leading all college advancement activities and strategy, alumni relations, and a special emphasis on major donor development.
Mike comes to LPC with many years of fundraising, alumni, and development experience, having served as the Associate Vice President of University Advancement at Cal Baptist University, with prior appointments in philanthropy at the University of North Dakota, the University of New Mexico, and the University of Minnesota-Crookston, as well as Special Olympics of North Dakota. Mike enjoys being an "emissary of philanthropy" while helping donors fulfill their philanthropic goals, as well as supporting the students and the mission of LPC. As a Christian in the field of development, he considers it is a special blessing to work on a Christian campus.
After many years in North Dakota (where Mike had a background as a hockey player), the Meyer family moved to Southern California in 2012, where they enjoy the warm winters and hot summers of the region. Mike and his wife, Kaye Lynn, have been married for over 30 years, and are blessed with three grown children.
