Parker University (formerly Parker College of Chiropractic) is named for its late founder, Dr. James William Parker. For five decades, Dr. Parker’s passion, skills, and love were directed completely toward chiropractic – from the day he began recuperating from childhood illnesses through chiropractic adjustments until his death in 1997. In the late 1970s, at the urging of his colleagues, Dr. Jim Parker helped establish and fund Parker College of Chiropractic and consented to lend his name to the school. These colleagues felt students could benefit from Dr. Parker’s unique success, his healing techniques, his philosophy, and his business training, which was not included in traditional chiropractic curriculum. Parker College was chartered by the State of Texas on March 8, 1978.
Parker University offers associate's degrees, a doctoral degree, and a certificate onsite at the Texas campus, as well as bachelor's and master's degrees in topics related to health care management and information technology.
