Social Media Policy: UPortlandGOLDs wishes to engage all alumni in conversation. Content from or represented within a constituent’s personal profile is their own. No tagged or connected profiles reflect the perspective of the University of Portland unless through a University sponsored account. All UP social media profiles exist to embrace and highlight the respectful and supportive UP community online. Negative comments or any disrespectful interactions will be deleted and you will be blocked.
