Mission Statement

In support of the tenets of the University of Portland's mission (Teaching and Learning, Faith and Formation, and Service and Leadership), the Office of Student Activities exists to facilitate active participation in extracurricular activities and leadership. We provide a fun, dynamic environment that creates educational opportunities for students to learn and practice decision-making as it relates to their core values and the benefits of the community. Through active mentorship, we promote a complex understanding of the dignity of human diversity, the formation of productive relationships, responsible citizenship, and life-long learning.

We strive to provide students with opportunities to learn outside the classroom. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our various opportunities such as New Student Orientation, UP Connections Mentorship Program, Junior Parents and Families Weekend, Diversity and Inclusion Programming, Diversity Dialogues, Student Media, Campus Program Board, Student Government, Clubs and Organizations, The Pilot Express Program and more!
