Student Conduct Program: Life on the Bluff - Student Handbook
Whether you live on or off-campus, this handbook is meant to serve as a resource to you about life in our community at the University of Portland.
As a Catholic university guided by the Congregation of Holy Cross, we are committed to developing the whole person through our mission: teaching and learning, faith and formation, service and leadership. Whether in a classroom, a residence hall, or a chapel, we hope that you find people and resources to challenge your intellect, develop your character, and deepen your faith. It is hoped that living with and among one another will spark your commitment to service and respect for every person you encounter, both on and off campus.
As a community, we are strengthened by the unique gifts and talents offered by each student. Ours is an inclusive environment that respects the dignity of each individual and provides the space and support for each member to flourish as an individual and as a part of the greater whole. It is in this spirit that we hold high expectations for one another. We are called to live by the example of Jesus Christ: to serve one another, grow with one another, and respect one another. The UP community as a whole is shaped by the successes and failures of individuals, and we seek every opportunity to encourage, challenge, and educate one another to live lives of great moral character.
