    What Is Special?

    Founded in 1891 by the Evangelical Covenant Church, North Park University is located on Chicago’s north side and enrolls more than 3,150 students from around the country and the world. At North Park, excellence implies not only a deep tradition in the liberal arts and the Christian faith, but also a spirit of innovation, reaching out to serve and to learn from the dynamic community around us. Cultural study centers enrich the life of the campus and connect us to the diverse people of Chicago whose roots extend around the globe. Graduate and special undergraduate programs bring adult, working professionals to the campus on evenings and weekends, enhancing the University's resources in the liberal arts as well as in specialized areas such as business, the health sciences, and education.

    We are a Christian university, committed to relating faith in Jesus Christ to the aims of higher education. Ours is not a conformist environment; acceptance of diversity and ecumenism is the spirit of our campus. Our door is open to students who recognize that education always implies values. In North Park's classrooms, you will find a full-time faculty of accomplished Christian teachers and scholars, and on our campus, a community of faith.

    We invite you to learn more about North Park—a special place with a history extending back more than 100 years and a future expanding to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We are looking for men and women who long to grow in knowledge and faith, and who seek a sense of vocation through leadership and servanthood in a global society.
