Founded in 1922, La Sierra University, formerly known as La Sierra College, is a private, co-educational Christian university located in inland
Southern Californiain the city of Riverside, California. La Sierra University is part of the Seventh-day Adventist system of higher education.
Loma Linda Universityand La Sierra College joined their undergraduate programs to form a two-campus university. Although formal ties ended in 1990, the pre-professional programs still benefit from that relationship: La Sierra is known to be a major feeder school for Loma Linda University. La Sierra University's first president following its separation from Loma Linda University was Fritz Guy. He was followed by Lawrence T. Geraty. In 2007, Randal Wisbey, previously president of sister institution Columbia Union College, became president of La Sierra University.
La Sierra University comprises the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, School of Religion, and School of Education. The university offers graduate and undergraduate curricula in applied and
liberal artsand sciences, business and management, religion, and programs for professional education in fulfillment of requirements for teaching credentials. The university recently opened its $23 million Thaine B. Price Science Complex, which houses mathematics, computer science and biology programs. [citation
