Welcome to Concordia University-Portland!
As a Christian university open to students of all faiths, our mission is to prepare leaders for the transformation of society, while remaining firmly rooted in our commitment to a Lutheran, liberal arts education.
Whether you are a student, parent, alumnus, supporter, teacher, employer or community member, I invite you to join us in this mission.
It’s an exciting time to be at Concordia University. We are motivated by our students, their development, and their success. As a result, we are now ranked among the fastest growing private universities in the nation over the past decade by the Chronicle of Higher Education (2015). For the past six consecutive years, the University was recognized on the U.S. President’s Community Service Honor Roll for its contribution of more than 251,000 service hours benefitting an estimated 10,000 people, including 5,000 youth. Additionally, we are at the forefront of creating systematic change in the education continuum through our ground-breaking 3 to Ph.D initiative. As outlined in our Vision 2024, we remain steadfast in our commitment to our mission, core values and to community engagement.
From our vibrant, urban main campus in Portland, Oregon, to our law school in the heart of downtown Boise, Idaho, and our rapidly expanding online programs, we provide rigorous academics combined with transformative service learning experiences for students seeking our undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate degrees as they further prepare to lead and serve in communities around the world.
The result? Our graduates are among the most sought after nurses, educators, financial professionals, non-profit executives, public servants, church leaders and more. Equipped with knowledge in their field, leadership skills, and a servant’s heart, Concordia graduates are called to make the world a better place.
We invite you to join us in this critical calling to educate the world’s future leaders.
For His Students,
Charles E. Schlimpert, Ph.D.
