North Park Catalog
The academic catalog of North Park University
has been a vital publication in the history of the school. Since 1892, it has communicated the school's identity, academic programs, and policies to current and prospective students through academic calendars; descriptions of courses, societies, extracurricular activities, and campus facilities; lists of board members, faculty, students, and alumni; tuition and fees; enrollment statistics; photographs; and more.
North Park University was formed in 1891 by the Evangelical Covenant Church
to provide basic education for Swedish immigrants and biblical training for those entering the ministry. Since then it has become a multicultural Christian university with programs in liberal arts, theology, and professional studies such as business, the health sciences, and education.
As North Park has evolved, the academic catalog has reflected these changes. For instance, types of information included vary over the years. Some years different departments, such as the seminary or the academy, produced their own catalog; other years they were published jointly with the college catalog.

Digitization of the North Park Catalog was made possible by a generous gift to the North Park library from Harry R. Cullins (C'85), who in his college days was a history student and contributor to the student newspaper
. The original items digitized in this collection are held at the F. M. Johnson Archives and Special Collections
at North Park University in Chicago, Illinois. Please contact archives staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
