Best Value School 2015For the second straight year, Park University is one of 15 colleges/universities nationwide to receive a Best Value School distinction from University Research & Review. Park is the only college/university based in the Kansas City region to earn a spot on the list, and is one of two Missouri schools to be honored.

UR&R, an organization dedicated to improving the process of how a student selects a postsecondary education, was created by former college/university presidents, provosts, professors and chief executive officers to recognize unique and reasonably priced American universities and colleges.

UR&R examined nearly 8,000 postsecondary schools based on criteria established by higher education experts. The organization weighed net cost, accreditation, variety and quality of programs and student satisfaction to determine the top schools for distinction.
