President's Message

For more than 123 years, Marylhurst University has been inspiring change both locally and globally. Our graduates became entrepreneurs, got jobs that supported their families, advocated for social justice and simply made Oregon and beyond a better place.  As the president, I am proud to continue this legacy of academic excellence and be a dedicated supporter of a community that inspires and transforms lives.

To me, Marylhurst excellence means more than just what goes on inside the classroom. We have a long history of providing adults of all faiths and backgrounds access to a quality education. Through flexible course formats, nationally recognized credit for prior learning program, online learning innovation and community college partnerships, we continue to redefine higher education to meet the needs of the modern learner.

For our incoming students, I welcome you to our supportive campus, and I can’t wait to see you bloom into empowered, ethical citizens that succeed professionally and personally.
