About Marylhurst University
Inspiring change since 1893
Marylhurst University has a legacy of inspiring change both locally and globally grounded in vision, courage and faith. Our foundresses – the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary – crossed a continent in 1859 to establish St. Mary’s Academy and later, Marylhurst University, providing access to an exceptional education in our region. In the 1920s, the Sisters fought the KKK in Oregon and won. They built a beautiful university campus that opened in 1930, a year into the Great Depression. They advocated for passing Oregon’s minimum wage law, one of the first in the nation, and succeeded. This took vision, courage and faith.
Today, this legacy carries forward in our values at Marylhurst. Our faculty and staff are committed to academic excellence rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, providing exceptional graduate programs and degree completion programs to men and women of all faiths and backgrounds. Our students are savvy and self-motivated; they have the courage to go back to school, the faith in themselves to succeed, and the vision to move their careers forward and inspire change in their communities and beyond.
