Warner Pacific College is an urban residential and commuter 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 school, it is affiliated with the Church of God.
The college has long sought to expand its campus, most recently (in 2006) pursuing the purchase of a nine acre portion of city property adjoined to the park. In its negotiations, the college has been represented by attorney and former Parks commissioner Jim Francesconi.
Enrollment totals approximately 650 students with a student to faculty ratio of 14:1. The college intends to significantly increase enrollment in coming years. Students come to Warner Pacific from 18 states and 9 countries. The on-campus library contains 56,647 volumes.
They field varsity teams in men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's track & field and women's volleyball.
In 2006, it was announced that the American Basketball Association would add a team called the Oregon Riptide, which was to have played its home games at Warner Pacific. The plans were never realized.
