Office of the CIO

Welcome to the University of Portland’s Information Services Division (IS). We are not just about technology as we also embrace information management, services, business process and efficiencies. Information technology is an enabler that is integrated into the campus-wide mission and goals. UP is going through a time of transformation where we are looking at our “digital future” as critical to enhancing our academic and research goals. We are constantly proposing new ways we can use technology to improve teaching and learning, student experience, scholarship and research, and administration.

We have four distinct groups within IS:

  • Office of the CIO
  • Academic Technology Services
  • Technical Services
  • Web and Enterprise Services

Our biggest asset within the IS enterprise at University of Portland is our people. We have a strong team of engaged individuals who are passionate about their jobs and working on the Bluff. The diversity of skills is significant and truly impressive. These individuals are being increasingly asked to be the bridge between the business of the institution and information technology to allow for more efficient and effective decision-making and improved provision of services to the UP community. We have adopted a tag line which helps guide our approach to providing our services: “We Listen, We Care, We Respond.

Please let us know if there are ways we can better serve you.
