THANK YOU FOR WAKING THE WYVERN!

The wyvern in our Palmer College crest represents strength, power, and perseverance. It represents passion, the pursuit, the fire that chiropractors bring to each patient they put their hands on.

This is our rallying cry. Because the future of Palmer is the future of chiropractic.

You are making a difference in a student’s life. And are leaving your mark on chiropractic.

Every gift counted, no matter how big or how small. Thank you for pushing us closer to our goal: to be The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education.® Today, and always.
