Press Release

Congressman Blumenauer visited Concordia University on March 13, speaking with a class of engaged students about a variety of federal issues before taking a brief tour and lunching with key University staff to discuss federal education legislation.

“Concordia University has had a significant and lasting impact on its NE neighborhood over the last decade,” the Congressman said. “From your thriving partnership with Faubion Elementary School to your open library to your new, community-focused athletic field, Concordia is an outstanding model of supportive university/community relationships.”

Concordia College is a private, Christian liberal arts university that offers undergraduate, graduate, and online courses in four colleges -- Education; Health and Human Services; Theology, Arts, and Sciences; and Management – to approximately 2500 students.  It will welcome its first students to its Law School in Boise ID this fall.
