About University of Portland
The University of Portland is a thriving community of over 5,000 students, faculty and staff located on a bluff overlooking the booming metropolitan city of Portland, Oregon. The University is led by Fr. Mark L. Poorman, C.S.C., who began his tenure as University of Portland’s 20th president in July 2014 after serving three years at UP as Executive Vice President.
The University’s commitment to providing an excellent educational experience was highlighted in 2014 with the conclusion of a fundraising campaign that raised nearly $182 million, making it one of the largest development campaigns ever for a Pacific Northwest private college or university.
