President, Parker University

William E. Morgan, DC

A passionate driving force

Dr. William Morgan doesn’t rest on his laurels. Since receiving his doctorate of chiropractic, our president has constantly been on the forefront of all things that elevate the reputation of health and wellness. Presidents, Supreme Court Justices and members of Congress have been under his care. He established the first chiropractic clinic at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and was the chiropractor to the U.S. Naval Academy football team. Dr. Morgan serves on an advisory board created to address injuries sustained by U.S. Armed Forces Personnel during active duty operations, and served with the Navy outright in a Special Warfare unit.

Dr. Morgan quickly brought his rich depth of experience to the students at Parker and works so that a diverse and established career like his own is available to all at Parker. His contagious passion for shaping the future of health care is a driving force at Parker and informs the legacy of the university and its students.



The President's Letter

To Parents and Prospective Students

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Parker University and to congratulate you on reaching this milestone.

Professional mastery, loving service, personal responsibility, passion, self-actualization, and a fulfilled life’s journey – it is my hope, desire, and intent that you will experience these traits at Parker in a very real way, every single day!

Parker is a university built purposely to espouse a spirit, a soul, an underlying mission: service to others. This mission originated with our founder, Dr. James W. Parker, and has been the bedrock of Parker University since its inception.

My favorite quote comes from the famed humanitarian and theologian, Albert Schweitzer, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.”

I truly believe that fulfillment in life only comes when you have discovered your unique gifts, talents, and place to serve. At Parker, we are here not just to teach, but to help you to discover where you can best serve humanity.

The faculty and staff of Parker University are now your partners in achieving not only your goal of a diploma, but also our goal of creating competent and confident professionals who are equipped for success in life. While there are several programs and degrees at Parker, a fundamental posit of our philosophy is that our bodies were created with an innate system of self-regulation. We respect and support that inborn system with a holistic evidence-based approach to healthcare.

I look forward to the day when you and I will share a special moment, a major milestone in your life, when I look you in the eyes, shake your hand, and present you with your hard-earned diploma. That moment will memorialize your achievement, sacrifice, and dedication, and you will be transformed from student to trusted colleague.

You have a journey ahead with plenty of hard work and sacrifice, but along the way you will make lifelong friends, many memories, and profound discoveries about yourself. Enjoy the journey.
