Leadership Opportunities | University of Portland

Leadership Opportunities

The example of Jesus and the tradition of the Church encourage us to minister with students, faculty, staff, and alumni, rather than exclusively to them. This means that much of our programming is student-developed and student-led.

Our student leaders are instrumental to the flourishing of our many groups, retreats, and events. Their gifts, passions, and ideas help us to continue growing our ministry at UP. Opportunities in leadership also allow students to develop their strengths and explore their vocations as they deepen their relationships with fellow classmates. Learn about some of our leadership opportunities below.

The Fish Core Team is a group of 5-6 dedicated student leaders who work together, and with the entire Fish community, to articulate the vision of Fish, coordinate weekly Fish nights and special events, and use their gifts to enrich the community. Click the photo to learn more!

Campus Ministry offers opportunities for growth in faith based servant leadership through our Spirituality Ambassadors program.  Students who participate in this program will receive a strong formation experience in servant leadership, growth in spiritual development, and opportunities to share faith development with peers in the University's residence halls.
