Last week University of Portland (UP) held an inauguration for the school’s 20th president, Father Mark L. Poorman.  Poorman has been with UP since 2011, serving as a professor of theology and the university’s executive vice president. He’s lived among students in college dorms for more than twenty years.

We’ll talk to Poorman about his vision for the university in his new role as president.
