We believe that God has called us to reach every corner of every campus.
For over 70 years, InterVarsity students and faculty have led movements on campuses across Oregon - growing in love for Jesus together, learning to love and serve our campus communities, pursuing justice, and offering the hope of Jesus to our friends.
With our partner movements, we want to see Jesus-centered movements on every college and university in Oregon.
Change the university. Change the world.
Our chapters exist to serve the campus
We welcome students and faculty into caring, diverse communities, where they can build friendships and explore Christian faith in community together
At many campuses, we have more than one chapter, which may include separate outreaches to international students, nursing students, sororities and fraternities, athletes, artists, and ethnic specific groups, as well as faculty and career-specific graduate student chapters.
Meet our Ministry Coaches
Thinking about leading on campus? We want to encourage and bless you! As your coaches, we will be in your corner, meeting with you regularly to prep your weekly Bible studies, training you in evangelism skills, helping you work through challenges, and helping you see the broader picture of what God is doing through you on campus! We believe you are the best person to reach your friends with the good news of Jesus, and we can help.

What we Believe
In InterVarsity, we believe that all people are made in God’s image and are loved by God. However you identify in your ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs, who you are matters to us and to God and you are welcome here. We seek spiritual growth, not spiritual perfection and welcome you to join us in this community as we earnestly seek to learn who Jesus is, what he teaches, and how we can apply his teachings to our lives.
There have been many attempts through the ages to articulate what Christians believe and why we do what we do. We subscribe to some basic statements and doctrines (See InterVarsity’s Doctrinal Statement and Core Values) and as a movement are particularly compelled by what we call “The Big Story.”
