Multnomah University is a diverse community that equips students to love Christ and serve their neighbors through their lives and work.
Multnomah University’s mission is to equip Christian students through higher education to become biblically competent, academically proficient, spiritually formed, and culturally engaged servant leaders, shaped to be a transforming force in the church, community, and world.
We affirm that the inspired Word of God informs every aspect of the university’s academic programs, co-curricular activities, and institutional operations and that biblical studies are foundational for all its programs.
We provide a learning community that promotes personal and spiritual development through a growing love for Christ and one another that is integrated with academic study and effective service.
We are committed to institutional integrity in all aspects of the university including organizational communication, financial stewardship, and the equitable treatment of all persons.
We foster educational excellence in a context of academic freedom by promoting scholarly inquiry, by embracing a biblical world view, and by integrating faith and learning across the academic and professional disciplines.
We seek to develop reflective, effective servant leaders through directed, practical experiences to discover and use their abilities to serve Christ.
We promote spiritual formation by cultivating a respectful and collegial community of maturing Christian believers.
We serve the Church by providing biblical, theological, and professional training; and we partner with local churches in promoting biblical spiritual renewal and justice across Christian traditions.
We promote a missional perspective of God’s work in the world by encouraging persuasive communication of the gospel and commitment to global ministry.
We seek to engage culture by understanding our world broadly and biblically, by integrating the richness of human diversity appropriately, and by expressing our faith incarnationally.
