Park Partners

Learn the many ways that we can work together.

As companies and organizations seek to recruit, retain and develop talent necessary to compete in today’s globally interconnected marketplace, they seek multifaceted partnerships with dynamic academic institutions. The Park Partners program is designed to create mutually beneficial relationships, which fulfill career services, corporate philanthropy, leadership and professional development, and networking objectives.

Founded in 1875 at its historic site in Parkville, Mo., Park University currently enjoys a distinguished position in higher education as a growing entrepreneurial institution with 40 campus centers in 21 states, in addition to an extensive online program. Approximately 46% of our students are from racial, ethnic and cultural groups typically underrepresented in colleges and universities, and 61% of our students are active duty military, active duty dependents, retired military or Department of Defense.

Park University provides access to a quality higher education experience that prepares a diverse community of learners to think critically, communicate effectively, demonstrate a global perspective and engage in lifelong learning and service to others.
