Northwest University was founded by the Northwest Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God and opened to students on October 1, 1934. It is a regionally accredited, Christian coeducational institution awarding associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degrees. The University is operated under the control of the Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Northwest, Southern Idaho, and Wyoming districts of the Assemblies of God. All these districts are represented on the University’s Board of Directors.
 
We, the people of Northwest University, carry the call of God by continually building a learning community dedicated to spiritual vitality, academic excellence, and empowered engagement with human need.
