Senior Awards 2021

A Message from Dr. Herbert A. Medina, Provost:

At the Awards Breakfast that is a part of Founders’ Day, our University of Portland community pauses to celebrate its rich past and promising future. The past as we honor the bold leaders who dared to dream of a Catholic university overlooking the Willamette River; the future as we recognize our most outstanding graduating seniors whose academic achievements will propel them into great endeavors in the years ahead.

Although we could not be together in person this year to honor these amazing young people, we still are proud to recognize them and acknowledge their many accomplishments in a virtual format as they prepare to exit UP for a future that is undoubtedly filled with hope and promise into a world that benefits from and desperately needs both. The accomplishments of the UP Class of 2021 are a constant reminder of the time and effort that our students have devoted to their studies and a promise of a future that is richer due to their skill, talent, dedication, and their care for the well-being of all peoples and our world.

As a university, we are proud to recognize these students and their achievements. Please join me in celebrating them and their many accomplishments.
