From University of Portland

Here on The Bluff, you’ll learn to think deeply, question endlessly, and chart a course that’s entirely your own. As a comprehensive Catholic university grounded in the liberal arts, we believe in the transformational power of a whole-person education.

With the support of caring professors and advisors, you’ll challenge your assumptions, explore new ideas, and discover your potential through hands-on curriculum, small, collaborative classes, and a wealth of opportunities to gain critical field experience, from research and internships to service and study abroad.

When you graduate from UP, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge, values, and skills to meet the needs of the world, forge a meaningful career path, and lead a life with purpose.
