Welcome to Campus Ministry!

Campus Ministry anchors the life of the University of Portland community in the knowledge of God's presence. Our concern for the dignity of every human being as God's cherished child directs us to assist all members of the University community to discover the deepest longing in their lives. Formed in the tradition of the Congregation of Holy Cross, we share in the University's central goal of educating the heart and mind. Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, we respect and seek to nurture the faith development of Catholics, other Christians and all who seek God with a sincere heart.

Fr. Thomas C. Oddo, C.S.C. Scholarship

Shortly after his untimely death in 1989, University of Portland President Father Thomas C. Oddo, C.S.C., was memorialized by faculty, staff, students, and friends with the establishment of an endowed scholarship fund named after him.  Every year the University awards scholarship funds in Father Oddo’s name to one or two students who meet a set of criteria which includes demonstrated commitment to service and to service learning. If you would like to nominate a rising Junior or Senior for this scholarship, including yourself, please click the link below.
