About Bastyr University

Since its inception in 1978, Bastyr University has been a pioneer in science-based natural medicine. Founders Les Griffith, ND; William A. Mitchell, Jr., ND; and Joseph E. Pizzorno, Jr., ND; along with Sheila Quinn, named the school after their beloved teacher and noted Seattle naturopathic physician Dr. John Bastyr. With just $200 in startup costs during their humble beginnings, the founders created a vision for an accredited natural health school that now is recognized as the leading health arts and sciences university in the world.

Founding President Emeritus Dr. Pizzorno saw the University through some significant growth during his 22 years of service, including the move to the current 51-acre campus in Kenmore, Washington, to accommodate the growing student body. (See the Historical Milestones.)

Although the school started as a naturopathic medicine college, Bastyr University now offers more than 20 degree and certificate programs. Building on its science-based foundation, the University has been the recipient of a number of multimillion-dollar research grants from the National Institutes of Health.

In September 2012, the University expanded again, opening Bastyr University California in San Diego, welcoming more than 50 students to its inaugural Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine class. California’s first and only accredited school of naturopathic medicine also offers a Master of Science in Nutrition for Wellness. In 2018, the San Diego campus expanded its program offerings to include the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, as well as a Certificate in Whole Food Plant-Based Culinary Nutrition.
