Marylhurst University Staff

Marylhurst University was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary to provide a high quality academic experience and to educate the underserved in the community.  The university has a long standing reputation for providing innovative and personalized approaches to meet the needs of traditional and non-traditional students.  In keeping with the foundation created by the Sister's values and inspirations, the university places a high value on creating a sense of community, service and social justice and ethical leadership.   The university is located just south of Portland, Oregon, near Lake Oswego, in one of the most idyllic campus settings, adjacent to the Willamette River.  Visitors to the campus are struck by its beauty and peacefulness. Successful candidates are not required to be Catholic, or have any religious affiliation, to be a part of the Marylhurst community. We respect the Sisters' values as the foundation for the way we operate. Please visit www.marylhurst.edu for more information about the Marylhurst University community.
