About

Sister Carol is a Sister of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM). She currently serves University Minister for the Marylhurst community as well as a member of the Religious Studies faculty.

Sister Carol is a member of the Religious Studies Assessment and Accreditation committee whose work led to our department receiving associate ATS membership. Prior to coming to Marylhurst, Sister Carol worked for 17 years in elementary education, serving as both K-8 teacher and as an administrator, in both inner city and rural schools. She received a Master of Education from the University of Portland, a Master of Divinity from Marylhurst, and is currently working toward a Doctor of Ministry from Washington Theological Union (Washington DC). She has been awarded the Doctorate of Humane Letters honoris causa from the University of San Francisco.

Sister Carol believes in the power of education to transform lives, and expects her students to engage with the materials presented so that they can benefit fully from the gift of study.
