Division of Student Affairs

"Education is the art of helping young people to completeness"  
— Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C.

Teaching and learning, faith and formation, and service and leadership distinguish the Catholic, holistic vision of education at the University of Portland. As Holy Cross educators, the Division of Student Affairs provides the professional and pastoral support to foster communities of charity and learning where each member is welcomed. Together we pursue significant questions that transform lives. We nurture the whole person — hearts, hands, and minds. We teach and practice responsibility to the common good, beginning with the moment of inquiry and through a life-long relationship with the University of Portland.
