UP BRIDGE | University of Portland



UP BRIDGE is a program that kicks off with Pre-Orientation activities on August 24th and 25th. It is designed to support Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), first-generation, mixed-raced, LGBTQ2SIA+, and all historically underrepresented students in transitioning to UP. All are welcome to participate in the UP Bridge pre-orientation activities. Throughout the year, UP Bridge will partner with FGEN, International Student Services, Study Abroad and other offices on campus to provide connections, resources, and tools for incoming first year students. The program will offer a "bridge" from high school to university life for students to engage with the University and make the most out of their first year on The Bluff. Please email oiedi@up.edu with any questions.
