Campaign North Park:
Create. Connect. Commit.

North Park's alumni and friends are dedicated to realizing its vision: to fashion a University of uncommon character and enduring excellence where faith, learning, and service meet. Campaign North Park is a key part of energizing and advancing the institution through its goals of building the new Science and Community Life Building; increasing student scholarships; promoting student and faculty enrichment, including expanded Chicago-based learning opportunities; and ensuring a stronger Annual Fund.

The members of Campaign North Park below invite you to join them in this important initiative. There has never been a better time to serve and support our great University.

Armour A’52 and Bev Swanson A’53

“Campaign North Park is especially exciting because it supports the great need we have today for excellent science education. We need a facility at North Park to ensure our students can continue to learn with our well-qualified faculty to get the very best education to fully serve our society. We are equally pleased that facilities in this building will help all students—graduate, undergraduate, and commuter—come together as a strong community. We recognize this building’s vital role in the mission of North Park, and we are privileged to contribute to this important effort.”

Bruce A’61 and Joan Bickner C’65

Joan: “Coming from Fort Dodge, Iowa, 51 years ago was a big change. At North Park, I found a welcoming and spiritually affirming family where I was able to earn my degree, start my nursing career, and make many lifelong relationships. I am thankful that over the years—and through this Campaign—I have been able to give back to North Park, enabling so many others to share the experiences I had.”

Bruce: “Growing up just north of Old Main, North Park has been important to my life. The Academy provided exceptional preparation for my later education and careers in law and business. North Park continues to offer an excellent education and to anchor the community for its urban neighbors. Giving of my talents and financial resources to North Park, and seeing the important results in my lifetime, has been a great source of personal joy and satisfaction.”

Dr. LoAnn and Dr. Lance Peterson

“As parents, we were so pleased that one of our daughters went to North Park because it is a unique multicultural Christian university that takes full advantage of its urban location to be a dynamic place of learning and service. As physicians, we are enthusiastic about Campaign North Park because of the goal to build the new Science and Community Life Building. We know this facility will further enhance the North Park mission for all students and will provide a state-of-the-art facility for its already outstanding programs in science and healthcare. We look forward to seeing many well-prepared North Park graduates becoming future physician leaders and ensuring the well-being of people and communities.”
