President Andrea P. Cook, Ph.D. announced that Warner Pacific College will  now have the designation as a University. This reflects a new era at Warner Pacific and it better encompasses the scope of the programs offered. “Our students and our faculty and staff have earned our place in this sphere and we know it’s where we belong,” she said.
