Warner Pacific College is an urban, Christian liberal arts college located in Southeast Portland, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1937, the college is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. A private college, it is affiliated with the Church of God.
Warner Pacific College was founded in 1937 and is affiliated with the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana). Its 15-acre (0.06-km²) urban campus is located on the southern slope of Mount Tabor (adjacent to the 195-acre (0.79 km2) [0.79-km²] Mount Tabor Park.)
The college has long sought to expand its campus, most recently (in 2006) pursuing the purchase of a nine-acre portion of city property adjoining the park. In its negotiations, the college was represented by attorney and former Parks commissioner Jim Francesconi, but that deal fell through when the neighborhood association got wind of negotiations and felt that the sale of the public land was improper.
Warner Pacific College's traditional undergraduate program offers 25 majors, seven areas of pre-professional study, and 29 minors. For working adults, Warner Pacific College offers its adult degree program with an associate degree in organizational dynamics; Bachelor's degrees in accounting, business administration, healthcare administration and human development; a Master of Science degree in management and organizational leadership, a Master of Education degree, a Master of Arts in Human services degree, a MMOL-to-MBA bridge program, and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
Enrollment totals 1,333 students with a student to faculty ratio of 14:1. Students at Warner Pacific are from eighteen states and nine countries. The on-campus library contains 56,647 volumes. The college was ranked as the 6th best among western regional colleges by U.S. News & World Report in 2016.
