Corban College is located in the Willamette Valley, in Salem, Oregon.

Corban College has its roots in Phoenix, Arizona, where it began as a Bible Institute in 1935. After relocating to California in 1946, it became known as Western Baptist Bible College, where it operated until moving to Oregon in 1969.

In 1968 it was first regionally accredited and remains so today by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Over the years, the college has been transformed from a Bible college to a comprehensive college offering programs in biblical studies, the liberal arts, and professional studies.

While it is Baptist in theology, Corban serves the greater evangelical community. In order to address the demographic changes from a historically Baptist student body to one representing a wide range of evangelical groups, the name was changed to Corban College in 2005.
