About George Fox University

George Fox University is the only Christian University in the Pacific Northwest classified by U.S. News & World Report as a national university. It offers bachelor's degrees in more than 40 majors, bachelor's degree-completion programs for working adults, seminary programs, and more than a dozen master's and doctoral degrees. The university was founded in Newberg, Ore. in 1891 by Quaker pioneers. Now, more than 3,200 students attend classes on the university's campus in Newberg, Ore., at its Portland, Ore., Salem, Ore., and Boise, Id. centers, and at other teaching sites in Oregon. George Fox University gives each incoming student a new Mac computer which is theirs to keep upon graduation.

George Fox University is Christ-centered. Our heritage as a Quaker-founded institution gives us distinctive common to the Friends Church, such as a concern for social justice, a commitment to peace and nonviolence, and a belief in the equality of all people. While approximately 5 percent of our undergraduate students are Friends, more than 50 denominations are represented on campus, the largest being Baptist.

Students of all faiths are welcome. While we don't require a signed statement of faith from students, we are a Christian community, and, as such, ask our students and employees to abide by the university's community expectations. In keeping with our mission of Christian higher education, all employees -- faculty, administration, and staff -- are committed evangelical Christians.
