UP receives $1.35 million gift

Over the past year, University of Portland has received a $1.35 million gift from the estate of alumna Elizabeth James. A portion of the gift, more than $1 million, was dedicated to the renovated Clark Library, where a conference room was named in her honor. In addition, the Elizabeth A. James Endowed Scholarship Fund was established with $350,000 of the estate’s gift. The scholarship fund goes to help students enrolled in the Pamplin School of Business.

James was director of finance for Providence Health Systems in Portland when she died in 2012 at the age of 57. She graduated from Hudson’s Bay High School in Vancouver as the valedictorian. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1977 and an MBA in 1986, both from University of Portland. She worked as an auditor for Blue Cross, Blue Shield and in 1983 joined Providence, where she worked for most of her career.
