The fundamental mission of the University of Pasadena was to be a functional vitalistic center for higher learning. The University initially intended to have a number of colleges teaching an array of subjects from a functional vitalistic standpoint, producing students who were well grounded in the functional vitalistic philosophy of Life, Health and Healing.
The school of Chiropractic became the only functioning program and as no other schools and programs were opened the name of the institution was changed to the Pasadena College of Chiropractic in September 1977. In 1989, the school moved from Pasadena, CA. to Pico Rivera, CA. and the Board of Trustees of the school voted to change the school’s name from Pasadena College of Chiropractic to the Southern California College of Chiropractic.
In November 1994, Dr. Edwin C. Floyd, a graduate of the initial University of Pasadena and founding President of the International College of Homeopathy was named President of Southern California College of Chiropractic. Dr. Floyd returned to his alma mater with a plan to reintroduce the university system that was the initial mission of the school. Dr. Floyd changed the name of the Southern California College of Chiropractic to Quantum University and began reforming the school of chiropractic into a university system anchored in the academia of Functional Vitalistic Medicine and Natural Medical Science.
In April of 1996, Quantum University graduated its last few remaining chiropractic students and ceased operation of the school of chiropractic, bringing to an end of over 25 years of producing well trained doctors of Chiropractic grounded in the concepts of Functional Vitalistic Natural Medicine. The university continuing in the spirit of training functional physicians while again becoming a university system incorporated the International College of Homeopathy into its system and continued teaching Classical Homeopathy to health care professionals throughout the United States.
Dr. Prescott developed a program for Postgraduate Natural Studies and Functional Medicine. The purpose of this program was to train doctors in those healing techniques and modalities that are not being taught in the current healthcare schools and colleges. Dr. Prescott requested that his school, be incorporated into the Quantum University system.
On September 8, 1998 fiduciary oversight of Quantum University, the International College of Homeopathy, and the new Veritas International University came under one Board of Trustees. The merging of the these three institutions created what is now QUANTUM-VERITAS International University Systems, which has come to be known and referred to as QVIUS.
At the conclusion of the September 8, 1998, meeting, Dr. Floyd was appointed President of QVIUS and given charge of continuing the mission of creating a functional center for higher learning initially started by the University of Pasadena.
