WORDS FROM THE PRES

DEAR

BUILDING OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT SUCCESS FRIENDS,

The idea of “building opportunity for student success” is not a slogan — at least not at Park University. It’s an uncompromising obligation. While we continue our progress, we reflect on all we’ve accomplished — with your support — during the 2015-16 academic year. In the following pages of the annual Report to Investors, I’m pleased to share highlights of Park’s success with you. In our efforts to prepare students for success in an ever-changing world, the University celebrated the transformation of Norrington Center. The beloved Parkville Campus landmark — next to iconic Mackay Hall — is now a modern, state-of-the-art library and academic commons. Renovation began in 2015 and was completed in spring 2016, thanks to the tremendous generosity — more than $350,000 raised — from corporations, foundations, Park alumni, faculty and staff, and friends of the University. Norrington Center — which now includes Park’s Academic Support Center, an expanded Campanella Gallery and a new Jolly Roger Café — was carefully redesigned to invite collaboration in a welcoming and comfortable environment. It is equipped with the most advanced digital sharing technologies and virtual video capabilities to connect students, faculty and staff across our 40 campus centers nationwide and online around the globe. We are beyond proud of this extraordinary capital improvement. This tremendous accomplishment spurs us forward to accelerate our future plans, including a new School of Business building on the Parkville Campus. At Park, we’re constantly evaluating our programs, services and amenities. As we move forward in the 2016-17 academic year, we remain steadfast to create an inclusive and enduring environment for students to pursue a relevant, affordable — and invaluable — higher education. We are grateful to you for making it possible.

GREG GUNDERSON, PH.D. PRESIDENT, PARK UNIVERSITY

NORRINGTON CENTER. TRANSFORMED. 7

“Norrington Center serves as the intellectual hub of Park University, granting all students 24-hour virtual access to academic resources while providing inclusive and collaborative spaces for students on the Parkville Campus to interact with local peers and classmates around the globe.”

PRESIDENT GREG GUNDERSON, PH.D.


Hushed tones. Isolated students sitting in disconnected patterns, surrounded by a towering maze of bookshelves. Only the brave dare sneak sustenance to fuel long, lonely hours of study. Sound familiar? Not anymore, at least not at Park University. Welcome to the future in Park’s renovated Norrington Center, where connection, creative collaboration and advanced technology — along with ample supplies of coffee and snacks — converge to transform the student experience. Norrington Center, a beloved Parkville Campus landmark next to iconic Mackay Hall, is now a modern, state-of-the-art library and academic commons. Renovation began in 2015 and was completed in spring 2016, thanks to the tremendous generosity — more than $350,000 raised — from corporations, foundations, Park alumni and friends of the University.

BUILDING OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

Park is especially proud of its faculty and staff who championed the project by raising $39,000 — exceeding a $25,000 goal — to fund one of two “huddle rooms” in Norrington Center.

R E N O V AT I N G A RENAISSANCE

funded by Andrew Carnegie and the Carnegie Foundation. In fact, it is the only remaining Carnegiefunded library in operation on a Missouri college campus. Over the years, it was converted into office and classroom spaces when the University’s McAfee Memorial Library moved to the Mabee Learning Center/Academic Underground in the 1980s. In addition to the library’s return to its original home, Norrington Center now includes a learning lab that seats up to 25 people and two smaller “huddle” rooms. Both are equipped with the latest multimedia capabilities, including large interactive screens with cameras and live-stream video technology. The modernization of Norrington Center reflects a renaissance happening at universities across the country. To meet the changing needs of students and incorporate new technologies, the traditional library experience is adapting to become an academic learning commons model.

Built in 1908 as a library building, Norrington Center was originally

PRESERVATION OF THIS ORIGINAL CARNEGIE STAINED GLASS WINDOW WAS BUT ONE CHALLENGE MET WHEN RENOVATING THIS HISTORIC STRUCTURE.

Norrington Center’s staff is available to students around the globe. Reference librarians are available by phone, e-mail and live chat.The new service model also allows students to access digital resources, e-journals and e-books online, regardless of their location worldwide. In addition, Norrington Center is home to the University’s Academic Support Center for tutoring, mentoring and disability services.The building also features an expanded Campanella Gallery exhibit space and the Jolly Roger Café. The renovation required a complex and complete demolition and rebuilding of the 11,000-square foot interior of Norrington Center. A project of this scope had never been completed for a Carnegie Library, but the University was fortunate to have the expert experience of its construction and design partners — JE Dunn Construction and Helix Architecture + Design — to keep the historic fabric intact throughout the renovation.

Although completed on schedule, the project faced an unexpected challenge when abandoned steam tunnels were discovered below the building that weren’t on any archival drawings. “When renovating historic buildings, it’s not uncommon to discover unforeseen obstacles. With our experience restoring projects like Union Station and the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City (Mo.), we are well prepared to respect and respond to the unknowns,” said Bob Dunn, senior vice president for community affairs at JE Dunn, president of the Dunn Family Foundation Board of Directors and former Park trustee. “We believe that inspired people build inspired places. That’s definitely the case with Norrington Center and Park University,” Dunn said. “I’m glad to see Park students and faculty enjoying the new Norrington Center. It was an honor to help make it happen.”

“Norrington Center’s innovative design and technology encourages collaboration. We want students to find a welcoming, comfortable and productive space that accommodates all types of learning needs and preferences.”

C E L E B R AT I N G 1 4 0 Y E A R S O F E N S U R I N G S T U D E N T S U C C E S S Park University celebrated the culmination of its 140th anniversary and renovation of Norrington Center at Ballyhoo on May 17, 2016, on the University’s flagship Parkville (Mo.) Campus. This year, Ballyhoo — an annual event to raise funds for the Presidential Honors Scholarship and other University programs — featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially re-open the doors to the renovated Norrington Center.

Sponsors and guests were among the first to tour the new academic commons building — where the McAfee Memorial Library has been returned to its original home — and see its many new amenities and state-of-the-art technologies.

Michael Collins, ’04, Board of Trustees chair, Betty Dusing, associate librarian who has served 50 years at Park, Greg Gunderson, Ph.D., president, Bethany Dunn, sophomore and Presidential Honors Scholarship recipient, and Douglas Fiore, Ph.D., provost and vice president for academic affairs, cut the ribbon for the newly renovated Norrington Center.

Guests also applauded the success of two current Presidential Honors Scholarship recipients: Sarah Zitter, sophomore political science/international politics and Spanish major, and Bethany Dunn, sophomore business administration/management and business administration/marketing major. “I’ve always felt a lot of pride in my Park education. I feel fortunate to receive a modern education for modern times. The Norrington Center renovation is an example of how the University is evolving to meet the needs of current and future students,” Dunn said. “We intend to make you proud.” The Lonnie McFadden Band entertains premier Ballyhoo sponsors on the riverboat cruise.

AN UNEXPECTED FRIENDSHIP 19

SCHOLARSHIP GIFT THE JOHN AND JEANIE FERGUSON S C H O L A R S H I P I N M E M O RY O F M A RY F E R G U S O N , R . N . Behind every scholarship is a story. For Jeanie and John Ferguson, the decision to establish a new nursing scholarship at Park University was a culmination of life experiences — and an unexpected friendship along the way. Growing up, Jeanie wasn’t encouraged to pursue a college education. “Back then, I was expected to wait for Mr. Right, have kids, cook, clean and that was that,” she said. But she decided to turn things around, and at age 40, Jeanie divorced and, as a full-time working mother, began a seven-year pursuit to earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration. In 1987, Jeanie graduated from Park; a year later, she married John Ferguson. “I always wanted to go to college, but my former husband didn’t allow it. He said women didn’t need a college education. (Jeanie said he later changed his tune when he realized the difference it made in her career.) Fortunately, John was very supportive. “I’m glad he pushed me when I was tired. It wasn’t easy to go to work, go to class, study and go back to work. But I’m glad I did it,” she said. Working at Farmland Industries, Jeanie took advantage of the company’s college assistance program. “My Park education opened a whole new world for me,” she said. Jeanie is now retired after a 30-year career in accounting at Farmland. John retired after 40 years at Midland Lithograph. “We worked hard


all our lives to set ourselves up for retirement, and we also recently received a malpractice settlement. To make good use of our money, we started looking for ways to invest in the future and what mattered most to us.” It was a renewed concern about health care, the nursing profession — and a special friendship — that guided Jeanie back to Park University. Mary Ferguson, a devoted nurse at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., was John Ferguson’s former spouse, and over time, became Jeanie’s friend. “It was unusual for Mary and me to become friends. But I’ve learned life’s too short for pettiness,” she said. The two women grew closer through Mary’s battle with cancer. “My relationship with Mary opened my eyes to the importance of quality nursing and health care. And as I read more about the nursing shortage and the need for more nursing education, I wanted to honor Mary’s memory by helping future nurses who would become as devoted to nursing as Mary had been.”

The John and Jeanie Ferguson Nursing Scholarship Fund in Memory of Mary Ferguson, R.N., will help future Park nursing students demonstrating economic need. “I can relate to the challenges students face today, but I personally know the potential education has to improve their lives,” Jeanie said. “Investing in nursing education has the power to improve all of our lives.”

“It was unusual for Mary and me to become friends. But I’ve learned life’s too short for pettiness.” JEANIE FERGUSON, ‘87

Deciding where to establish the scholarship was clear. “I’m a proud Park graduate and my daughter,Vicky Rhodes, ’85, also earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Park,” she said. But it wasn’t until Jeanie got in touch with the University that she learned about the recent expansion of the Ellen Finley Earhart Department of Nursing at Park. “I attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony last spring and was very impressed to see all that Park is doing to prepare future nurses.”

BEYOND THE BANK

Ed Bradley drives by Park University’s Parkville Campus nearly every day. Like many, he admires the picturesque campus just minutes from his office at BankLiberty in downtown Parkville, Mo. But admiring wasn’t enough for Bradley.

Member FDIC

The lifelong athlete decided to attend a Pirates basketball game. Captivated by the energy he saw among the students and staff at Park, Bradley has since led a full-court press effort to establish BankLiberty as a valued Park Partner.

I N VA L U A B L E C O M B I N AT I O N “We see Ed at basketball games, and then volleyball and all Park sporting events. He’s a super fan,” said Steve Wilson, Park’s assistant athletic director for sports communications. “But he’s much more than a fan of Park’s athletic program. He enjoys talking with Park students, faculty and staff. When a business leader becomes a dedicated fan, funder and friend, it’s an invaluable combination for the University.” Beyond cheering student-athletes to victory, Bradley has been instrumental in leading BankLiberty’s partnership with Park to champion all facets of student success. “At BankLiberty, we’re dedicated to the success of the communities we serve. That’s why I wanted to find ways the bank could make a closer connection to Park,” Bradley said. The tradition began

“We’re fortunate to have a leading University at the center of our community and I can’t imagine a business not taking advantage of the many mutually beneficial opportunities it affords them.” ED BRADLEY BANKLIBERTY

more than 100 years ago when it opened its doors in Parkville, first as Farmer’s Exchange, then Patriots Bank and now BankLiberty. Today, BankLiberty sponsors Park athletics and Park’s annual fundraising event, Ballyhoo, to support student scholarships.


“When a business leader becomes a dedicated fan, funder and friend, it’s an invaluable combination for the University.”

MAKING THEM FEEL WELCOME In the banking world, Bradley said it’s important to know as much as possible about customers to better serve them. “Park staff and students are like family at BankLiberty. We particularly enjoy helping international students to establish financial services,” he said. “Our staff enjoys getting to know them, especially since many are here alone, away from their families for the first time. We strive to always make them feel welcomed.”

STEVE WILSON ASSISTANT ATHLETIC DIRECTOR FOR SPORTS COMMUNICATIONS

G R E AT E S T R E W A R D Beyond corporate philanthropy, what matters most to Bradley are the personal relationships forged over the years. “At BankLiberty, we enjoy building genuine friendships at Park. It’s been especially enlightening to befriend the students and to learn about their goals, challenges and aspirations. Their diverse perspectives continue to expand ours. It’s the greatest reward.”

Bradley also volunteers his time to offer more than 40 years of his business experience to the University as a founding member of Park’s School of Business Advisory Council. Recently, he helped the school secure accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. Bradley’s son, Luke, is a 2007 Park graduate, and his grandson, Andrew Parker, is a 2015 Park graduate. “I know firsthand the value of a Park education,” he said.

When she read about the internship at BankLiberty in an e-mail from Park University’s Career Development Center, she jumped at the chance.

BANKING ON A CHAMPION

And Wendy Romero knows how to jump.

23

In 2014, Romero helped lead Park’s women’s volleyball team to win its first NAIA national championship to cap off a 40-0 season. Named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player and a first team NAIA All-America selection, the six-foot senior from San Carlos, Venezuela, has never been afraid to go after the proverbial ball. “I had seen Ed Bradley at our volleyball games. I knew he worked for BankLiberty and the company was very supportive of Park students. After a game, I decided to go up to him and tell him I was majoring in accounting and ask about an internship. I was glad he encouraged me to apply,” she said. She started her internship last year, working 20 hours a week at BankLiberty’s downtown Parkville branch. “It’s been a great opportunity to gain career experience,” Romero said. Before coming to the U.S. for school, Romero represented her native Venezuela at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, when she was 16 years old — the youngest Olympian competing for her country’s volleyball team.

FIERCE SPIRIT — ON A N D O F F T H E C O U RT “Wendy is fierce on the court, so it’s interesting to see her quieter side at the bank,” Bradley said. “We admire how diligently she works to serve our customers while managing a demanding class load and practice schedule.” They would soon see Romero’s fierce spirit carry her through unexpected adversity. During the summer of 2015, unimaginable pain forced Romero off the court. “I was in my apartment cooking arepa, a native Venezuelan dish that I love,” she said. “Suddenly, the pan slipped out of my hand and sizzling oil spilled down my legs and feet. The pain was excruciating.” Romero endured second and third degree burns on her legs, hands and feet. After nearly a week in a Kansas City area burn center where she had plastic surgery on her foot, Romero dedicated herself to rehabilitation. Her goal was to get back on the court, but there were no guarantees. On crutches, she returned to class to finish her summer class and suited up to attend every volleyball game her junior year. “It was hard to watch from the sidelines. I could have quit, but I decided to do everything I could to get back out there.” Perseverance paid off. Romero rejoined her team on the court


for the 2016 season and is on track to graduate in May with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. “I couldn’t have done it without the support of everyone at Park and BankLiberty,” she said. “I’ve learned I’m capable of more than I imagined. After graduation, I plan to go after my Master of Business Administration degree at Park and pursue a career in finance.” “Everyone at BankLiberty was thrilled to see Wendy back in action,” Bradley said. “Her fierce courage on and off the court has shown us what it means to be a true champion.”

WAY MORE FUN THAN WORKING 25

$ 4 8 , 0 0 0 R A I S E D F O R PA R K S T U D E N T- AT H L E T E S Park University’s 2015 Golf Scramble was a rousing success! Hosted at The National Golf Club of Kansas City on a windy but picture-perfect day in October, the tournament raised nearly $48,000. Net proceeds supported the University’s Department of Athletics. More than 140 golfers participated — the first time the annual event had a full field of players. Before the shotgun start, a special breakfast and inaugural ceremony was held for the Park Athletics Wall of Honor to induct 14 individuals and two teams. The Park Athletic Wall of Honor is the highest honor bestowed by the University’s Department of Athletics. It recognizes former Park studentathletes, coaches, teams and special contributors whose accomplishments have brought prestige and honor to Park through athletic endeavors. Ten former student-athletes highlighted the 2015 class of honorees, as well as two coaches and two meritorious contributors to the department. The two teams joining the individual honorees both made national news in NAIA championship matches — the 2014 NAIA national championship women’s volleyball team, which finished with a perfect 40-0 record, and the 1994 women’s soccer team, which went 24-3 and concluded the season as the runner-up in the NAIA national tournament. Both coaches inducted led teams to NAIA Jinny McCoy, Park honorary trustee, prominence, including the founding father of Park’s is inducted into the Park Athletics running sports, Don VandeWalle, and former men’s Wall of Honor for meritorious basketball coach and current director of athletics, service by Claude English, Claude English.

We’ve all heard about the upside. Property tax incentives or abatements are powerful economic tools for state and local governments to entice businesses to move or stay within their boundaries. Terrence Ward, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Public Administration and Area Coordinator for Public Management

Yet these same incentives can jeopardize the livelihood of fundamental government services such as public schools, community colleges, libraries, and senior and health services that are dependent on property tax revenues.

To better understand the impact of property tax incentives in Missouri, Park University received a $25,000 grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The grant funds research to collect tax abatement data for 2013 and 2015 in Missouri to determine its impact on school funding. A portion of the grant will provide stipends for Park’s graduate students to assist with the research led by Terrence Ward, Ph.D., assistant professor of public administration and area coordinator for public management. “While we understand how tax incentives spur economic growth, we don’t fully understand the downside — and or its extent,” Ward said. “Generally speaking, a city or state has the authority to either abate or divert property tax revenues from other government entities, such as schools and libraries, without their consent or approval. Our research will quantify what’s happening to taxing jurisdictions in Jackson and Clay counties to help determine how tax incentives threaten Missouri schools.” Ward has created a database to collect data on property taxes that have been either abated or diverted in 2007, 2009 and 2011. The Kauffman Foundation grant enables Ward and his students to expand the research to include data from 2013 and 2015. “We’re finding, for example, that almost $200 million in property taxes gets diverted from school districts in Missouri because of property tax incentives,” he said. “The research quantifies what is really happening and helps illustrate the full impact of incentives.”

“...almost 200 million in property taxes gets diverted from school districts in Missouri...”

TERRENCE WARD, PH.D.

The research, slated to be completed in 2017, will be published on the Kauffman Foundation website and shared with statewide education associations for use in policy development and action agendas.

BUILDING OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

Leadership giving is a critical component of Park University’s ability to demonstrate proof of internal support to external funding sources. Park’s Club 1000 members are leadership donors who make an annual gift of $1,000 or more to the Park Fund. Funds are distributed at the discretion of the University’s president for Park’s most pressing needs.

“I think it’s important to give back to your alma mater in any way you can, be it time, talent or treasure. If you are in a position to give back monetarily, you should. There is no doubt my Park education helped me secure a more personally and financially rewarding position after I retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. And I was raised to help others whenever I can. That’s why I give.” JOSEPH (JOE) H. GEETER III, ’99
