IRVINE, Calif. (February 10, 2020)—Today, Concordia University-Portland (CUP) announced that its Board of Regents has voted to close the campus effective at the end of April. Concordia University Irvine (CUI) shares in the grief of this news. For more than 100 years, Concordia Portland has been a member of the Portland community faithfully preparing students to be the leaders of tomorrow. While Concordia University Irvine and Concordia University-Portland are members of the same system—the Concordia University System—each university is run independently by its own Board of Regents. CUI will work with Concordia Portland and its students as a resource for transferring and completing coursework. Join us in praying for our sister school and their students, families, staff, faculty, alumni, and leadership.
