Northwest Nazarene University recently conducted an internal assessment of its position in intercollegiate athletics. The study confirmed that Northwest Nazarene University is proud to be an active, competitive member of NCAA Division II.

In 1999, NNU moved from competing in the NAIA to NCAA Division II. Throughout that decade, NNU has proven its ability to field competitive teams, attract student-athletes who complement our commitment to academic and athletic excellence, and staff our athletic program with coaches committed to our institutional mission and values.

As members of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) we are committed to excellence on the field and in the classroom. This is readily apparent in the fact that NNU student-athletes have, for the third year in a row, won the GNAC Academic All-Sports Award.

President David Alexander said, “As NNU reaffirms its membership in NCAA Division II we commit to continuously improve our intercollegiate athletic program. Our trustees, faculty, coaching staff, student-athletes and fans all aspire to provide the resources and exercise the discipline necessary to be the best we can be in our academic pursuits and on the field of competition.”
