In the spring of 1939, Multnomah granted diplomas to thirty-one students-its first graduating class. In 1993, Multnomah School of the Bible became Multnomah Bible College and Seminary, and in 2008, Multnomah added the name Multnomah University as an umbrella title to encompass all the structural elements that make up the institution. The Rev. Dr. Craig Williford serves as Multnomah’s president.
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.
