  • Parker Leadership Academy


Parker University recognizes the importance of maintaining a comprehensive benefit program for our employees. We offer a generous and full range of group employee benefits, from education opportunities to health insurance, to all eligible employees.

Parker’s comprehensive benefits program includes a choice between two medical plan options, both with prescription coverage. Additionally, Parker offers dental, life and AD&D, vision, flexible spending account, voluntary benefits for sickness and cancer indemnity plans, short term and long term disability, and a 403(b) DC retirement plan. Parker offers group health insurance to all regular full-time employees. The plan is designed as a cost sharing plan between the employee and the university. Parker utilizes a self-insured program which uses the United Healthcare (UHC) Options PPO network of providers. You can verify provider participation here. Prescription and chiropractic benefits are included in this plan.

In addition to health benefits, regularly appointed full-time faculty or staff members may qualify for tuition remission as long as you meet certain eligibility requirements. Additional Parker University benefits include:

Educational Assistance:
After one year of full-time continuous employment, employees are eligible to receive reimbursement for tuition if the course is job-related, pre-approved, and funding is available.

Standard Process Student Activity Center (gym):
