Take Your Place in the Palmer History Books Forever
The walls of Palmer College carry the richest and longest history in the chiropractic profession. As alumni of Palmer College, you are an important piece of that history. The story of every Palmer graduate is woven within the fabric of the last 125 years of Palmer, and now it’s your time to share that story.
- What are your fondest memories of your time at Palmer?
- What instructor made the greatest impact on you as a student?
- Did you meet your husband/wife/best friend at Palmer?
- Where has your career in chiropractic taken you?
Your story is up to you. We’re excited to partner with Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) who will gather your stories as part of the Oral History Project, a project that celebrates the last 125 years of Palmer. Stories will be compiled in a hardcover memory book that will be made available for purchase following the completion of the project. No purchase is required for alumni to participate.
In the coming weeks, you will receive a postcard and email from PCI, on our behalf, with an invitation to participate in this important milestone project.
The Oral History Project officially launches June 6! To make sure you are included, you may call 877-583-7858 to update your information.

FAQs by Alumni
I received an email/postcard/phone call asking for my personal information and a story about Palmer College of Chiropractic. Tell me more about the project.
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an Oral History Publication for Palmer College of Chiropractic. PCI is a family-owned business based in Dallas, Texas that has published directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation for over 100 years. This project allows us to hear about your personal experiences from your time at Palmer College of Chiropractic and how the school helped shape your life since then. And, while we have you on the phone, we want to make sure your contact information is up to date.
Does Palmer College of Chiropractic benefit from this at all?
Yes, in a few different ways:
- Updated Information – allows us to effectively communicate with and engage alumni
- Legacy – sharing and collecting stories preserves the history of our school
- Pride–wearing apparel shows support and love for our school
