Concordia University Portland isn’t just a private, nonprofit, faith-based university nestled in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a community of passionate, courageous individuals, inspired to work together to create real change. College is all about who you’ll become. Here, you’ll flourish in a supportive community that is committed to making a difference, and you’ll benefit from education that extends beyond the classroom. 

Career-ready majors
You’ll graduate from Concordia with the skills employers are looking for. Learning isn’t confined to the classroom—you’ll also learn by doing when you intern at industry-leading Portland companies like Nike, Intel, and Freightliner.

Opportunities to give back
Being a Cavalier means being part of a close-knit community where you can really make a difference. Service isn’t just something we do—it’s a way of life.

Something for everyone
From art to activism, student government to choir—we have so much to offer.

If you’re into sports, we nail it with 15 NCAA Division II varsity teams, and with intramural and club sports too.

Small, supportive campus
With Concordia’s small class sizes, your professors will know you by name and are committed to helping you succeed.

Location, location, location
You’ll have all of Portland at your fingertips—from museums to Blazers games, food carts on Alberta Street, and outdoors galore: hiking, surfing, and snowboarding from two minutes to less than two hours away.
