Our Mission

Spreading Loving Energy Without Expectation

When you went to school, you probably learned science, history, and other subjects—some of which you will rarely use in your adult life. But, chances are, you didn’t learn about some of the most important subjects in life: Love, relationships, happiness, and inner and outer success.

Now, there is a solution to this higher wisdom education gap. We call it Love University.

Love University is a fast-growing multiplatform community of empowerment and growth. Now a weekly podcast on iTunes and Podbean, Love University teaches people worldwide how to love themselves, others, and a higher power. Love University is the brainchild of best-selling author (LoveTypes and GuyTypes) and clinical psychologist, Dr. Alex Avila. At Love University, Dr. Avila’s mission is to provide the antidote to the negativity, pain, defeat, and loneliness that many people face in today’s world.

As a respected college professor and author of four books on love and transformation, Dr. Avila has pioneered a new form of intelligence, which he calls “Love Q,” or “Love Intelligence.” Love intelligence consists of traits such as compassion, empathy, patience, kindness, generosity, and unconditional love. As students and listeners participate in Love University podcasts, classes, shows, and events, they will learn how to develop their Love Q, so they can elevate their lives, achieve their dreams, and spread loving energy without expectations.​

Each week, “Love University” provides podcast listeners with valuable insight, stories, advice, and inspiration to achieve love and excellence in their personal and professional lives. Applying Dr. Avila’s 25 years of psychological training, research, and teaching, Love University makes love and self-esteem easy to understand and practical to apply in your daily life. Mix in transformational guests who have turned “pain into power,” and the result is a growing community of “Love Students” worldwide—a network of loving people that cuts across demographics, backgrounds, and nationalities. The Love University message is simple, but powerful: “Love is an energy that permeates everything” and “Give love without expectations and you will accomplish miracles in your life.”
