Chapter Accolades

University of Portland Regional and Affinity Chapters are an essential part of our Pilot network. We annually recognize Chapters that have gone above and beyond in their service to the Pilot community. Chapter accolades are presented annually at the Alumni Leadership Conference during Reunion Weekend.

Chapters of Excellence

The "Chapter of Excellence" status is given to Chapters whose efforts during a given fiscal year are exemplary. Criteria include welcoming and connecting alumni in their area, supporting UP students and faculty, strengthening branding, and increasing donor and volunteer engagement that go well beyond the minimum requirements for a Chapter. Chapters of Excellence receive additional UP support and resources that are consistent with their commitment to serving the diverse needs and interests of all Pilots and their families.

All Chapters interested in the Chapter of Excellence status must apply by May 24, 2019.
