Advancing Student Learning and Success DENNIS MARCHIORI, D.C., Ph.D.
CHANCELLOR AND CEO, PALMER COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC
If you’ve ever heard me talk about the future of Palmer College, you know that advancing student learning and success drives our vision. That’s why we’re investing in our campuses and technology—to ensure that Palmer’s commitment to remaining the best chiropractic college in the world is delivered through an exceptional student experience. In addition to enhancing our learning spaces and technology, we also strive to ensure that the best and brightest students can pursue their dreams of becoming a Palmer chiropractor, regardless of their financial situation.
Scholarships make that possible. I’m
proud to say that Palmer College offers more scholarships every year than any other chiropractic institution. We’re able to do this thanks to the commitment and
generosity of our alumni who recognize the power of scholarships in helping students pursue their dreams. In fact, approximately 20% of all Palmer students receive a donor-funded scholarship. Last year, more than 500 alumni came together on Giving Day to contribute gifts that impact student success, including $30,000 in scholarship funding. In the pages that follow, you’ll read about the alumni who recently made gifts that will enable an endowed scholarship and their legacy of giving to continue in perpetuity. Our profession started with a movement of hands that changed health care forever; today it continues with Palmer alumni around the world who give by caring for their patients, give within their communities, and give to the future of our profession through scholarship gifts.
