About Concordia University-Portland

Concordia University-Portland is committed to the dual purpose of preparing students for life and for living.

Founded by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, we opened our doors for the first time in Portland, Oregon, in 1905. Our mission is to provide a challenging, supportive, and faith-based learning environment where spirited intellectual inquiry strengthens our commitment to justice, compassion, and moral integrity. We are open to students of any faith, and we welcome diversity.

As part of the Concordia University System, our mission extends to helping working professionals who want to improve their communities and the world through learning, service, and leadership. As a member of this network of 10 private universities, Concordia University - Portland offers a liberal arts education, pre-professional programs, professional church work programs, and undergraduate and graduate degrees in education and business.

Students, staff, and faculty — the Concordia Portland Community — are valued as the most important components of this campus. The campus is always striving to encourage and support students in every way possible so that they may become leaders able to serve and fulfill the needs of the community.
