The Seventh-day Adventist Church founded La Sierra University in the scenic Southern California City of Riverside in 1922. La Sierra is dedicated to finding qualified applicants in the context of the Seventh-day Adventist faith and values. To learn more of What Seventh-day Adventists Believe, please click here.

As a multicultural Christian university, our fundamental purpose is to provide higher education in an environment for learning that emphasizes personal integrity, intellectual development, and generous service to humankind and the church. We ask that all candidates understand and embrace the mission, values and identity of La Sierra University as a Seventh-day Adventist institution.

Furthermore, La Sierra University is a religiously-qualified Equal Opportunity Employer with the right to prefer Seventh-day Adventists in hiring. In the event that a qualified Seventh-day Adventist is not available to fill a position in the University, preference will be given to applicants of other faiths who have religious beliefs compatible with those of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and who support the published mission of the University.

All offers of employment are contingent upon the results of a background check and committee approval.
