To prepare students for lives of significance and service through education in the liberal arts, professional studies, and theology
North Park University’s core institutional identity as a Christian, city-centered, intercultural university is the driving force behind our vision to be a place of uncommon character and enduring excellence, where faith, learning, and service meet.
With a 12:1 student-faculty ratio and an average class size of 17, North Park treats its students with the highest level of care and attention. Our most popular majors include Biology, Business/Economics, Exercise Science, and Nursing.
Located in the world-class city of Chicago, North Park’s learning community adopts the city as a foundation for academic excellence. We’re proud to educate students from diverse backgrounds, with 42% of our student body identifying as people of color. We practice Christian hospitality with students of all faith traditions while centering on the affirmations of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
Our park-like campus is home to 15 varsity athletic teams and an array of cultural, social, academic, and political student organizations. Students build community with one another in residence halls, over lunch at Einstein Bros. Bagels, or while playing Frisbee on the quad. North Park truly combines the best of a traditional college experience with the vitality of the city.
Most importantly, the University is prepared to serve as your spiritual home for the next four years, a place where your personal relationship with Christ will be nurtured and grown. Weekly Chapel services, small groups, and our robust University Ministries department offer countless opportunities for Christian formation.
