Office of University Marketing and Communications

About Us

When Park University opened in 1875, the motto Fides et Labor (Faith and Work) epitomized the values of Park's founders who envisioned a progressive educational community dedicated to service. This vision has endured for nearly 140 years to serve generations of students, faculty and staff, as well as new communities around the globe.

The Office of University Marketing and Communications is dedicated to its own service role, providing professional creative talents and technical expertise to market Park as a world-class institution of higher learning.
