North Park

North Park University was founded by members of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) in 1891, and the faith journey of our students, faculty, and staff continues to be an important topic and discussion across campus. While we maintain our Christian heritage and worldview, we also welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds to our student community, valuing the perspectives and deep discussions all individuals help to bring to classrooms and community life.

Go Deeper

At North Park University, we’re dedicated to preparing students for lives of significance and service. Through our new Urban Discipleship Learning Community (UDLC), first-year students will have the opportunity to go deeper in their development as Christian leaders during their college experience.

The front stone of the University

As part of North Park's commitment to affordability, we are proud to provide special tuition grants to undergraduate students who are either active participants in a congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church or legal dependents of Covenant clergy. We also offer a matching grant program for churches that desire to financially support their students in college.

Camp Grant

Working at a camp for summer break can be a great way for North Park students to see new places, meet new people, and gain valuable experience in a variety of areas. We're proud to partner with the Association of Covenant Camps and Conference Centers, an affiliated ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church, to connect our students with these great positions.
