Employee Comment

I appreciate how resilient Parker University has become! We have weathered storms of various types, including pandemic and we keep going and growing; this is truly an organization that values its individual team members and collective team efforts.

President's Statement

Parker: dedicated to providing quality education to our students across many healthcare disciplines. Its Faculty and Staff: the embodiment of nurturing service. Its students: benefactors of that loving tutelage/guidance. An F3 tornado and COVID19: Devastating for many, but this Parker family rallied, organized and shifted everything online, which was fortuitously advantageous. None of the past year and a half, hard work, and loving service could have been remotely possible without Parker's faculty and staff!
