Marylhurst faculty received "excellence and innovation" grants supporting work in business, interior design, art, sustainability and music therapy.
For more than a century, Marylhurst University has been dedicated to delivering academic excellence in an environment that supports student success. As Marylhurst's president since 2008, I'm honored to help build on this tradition of excellence, and enhance our university's ability to serve students of all ages who wish to enrich their personal and professional lives.
Students come to Marylhurst for many reasons, but all of them are looking to transform their lives in some way. Our job is to enable that transformation. Our small, seminar-style classes provide individual attention in a powerful learning setting. Our faculty are recognized leaders in their fields and bring practical tested knowledge to the classroom. Our courses are centered around your schedule: you can take classes during the day, in the evenings, on the weekends, online, whatever works best for you as you fit school into an already busy life.
Most of all, Marylhurst is a university with a rich heritage that we continue to embrace. Our founders, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, knew how important it is to education the "whole" person. They created an engaging learning atmosphere at Marylhurst that fuels the imagination, broadens intellectual horizons and strengthens professional expertise. Whether you are trying to create a better life or create a better world, you will leave Marylhurst more prepared to lead and serve. That is our promise and commitment to you.
Whether you are enrolled as a student, visiting campus for an event or looking for ways to partner with our university, I welcome you to the Marylhurst community.
