The University of LaVerne is a 126-year old, private independent, comprehensive, doctoral granting institution in Southern California with a strong emphasis on values, teaching excellence, community engagement, and an increasing commitment to research and publication. The University offers high quality, liberal arts and professional degree programs at the undergraduate to doctoral levels and is comprised of 9 campuses with the main campus located in the City of LaVerne, 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Regional campuses range from Vandenberg in the North, to Irvine in the South, and from Oxnard in the West to Victorville in the East.
The University of La Verne was founded by members of the Church of the Brethren, a small protestant denomination founded in 1708. While the University no longer has official ties to the Church of the Brethren, the University continues to be shaped by Brethren values of service, community, hospitality, social justice, peacemaking, and humility. The Church of the Brethren is one of the three historic peace churches, known for its commitment to pacifism. The University continues to honor and appreciate its pacifist roots, encouraging our community to ask difficult and enduring questions about peacemaking, and values its long history of students, faculty, and staff who have been conscientious objectors to war and active in peace and social justice movements.
Today, the University has a federal designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) with 40% of the student population identifying itself as Hispanic/Latino, 55% students of color, 10% international students, and a large proportion first-generation. The University has a strong commitment to diversity and equity, and places a high priority on creating an environment that supports the growth and success of underrepresented and underserved populations. The university seeks to widen access to higher education, provide transformative education, and prepare students to have career and community success.
Classified by Carnegie as a Community-Engaged University, La Verne offers high quality, liberal arts and professional degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels to traditional-age, adult learners and veterans.
