UP ranked high for service

University of Portland has been named among the top schools in the country for service according to Washington Monthly’s annual college rankings. Among 682 “master’s universities,” the University was recognized as the third best nationally for its commitment to community service. The University ranked first overall in this category in 2011 and 2010.

“Service is one of the key components in a Catholic education,” said Holy Cross Father William Beauchamp, UP's president. “Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Portland find service with and for others to be a powerful way to apply their education and faith in the world.”

In addition to the service of University of Portland alumni in the Peace Corps and in the military, during the 2010-11 school year students volunteered a total of 163,891 community service hours – nearly 50 hours per undergraduate student.
