Executive Partnership Program

North Park University offers our most committed partners an exciting opportunity to positively impact the lives of students and help shape our Chicago community. Our new Executive Partnership Program (EPP) invites you to join us in cultivating the next generation workforce as they lead lives of significance and service. EPP is an innovative way to both promote your business objectives and invest in future business and community leaders.

Community Members

In order to better serve you, we direct all childcare and tutoring requests to College Nannies and Tutors. They do a great job matching people to potential candidates. You can request a North Park student through them and if possible they will accommodate. North Park does not provide background checks of students and is not responsible for any liability in regards to working relationships between community members and students.

For Church and Ministry

If you’re looking to connect with students from North Park Theological Seminary, the Field Education program facilitates practical ministry experience opportunities for Seminary students. Please contact the Field Education staff to inquire about site criteria for this program.
