Team UP

text "Team UP since 1901"

Team UP connects the UP community together, one pin at a time. Since our founding in 1901, students, faculty, staff, and alumni are all members of the Team UP family.

Team UP officially kicked off the 2019-2020 academic year on Thursday, August 29 with stickers, pins, and popsicles to celebrate the new year!

2019-2020 design

The Team UP design features the iconic University of Portland building Waldschmidt Hall with a skyline of sun rays and rain clouds. Built in 1891 by the now defunct Portland University, Waldschmidt Hall has served as the center of campus since the University's founding in 1901 by Archbishop Alexander Christie. Then known as "West Hall," the building served as the dormitory, classroom space, offices, and dining hall for the earliest University of Portland students. To complete the design, the skyline elements represent the varying weather of the Pacific Northwest.
