Not only is the University of Portland bustling with new freshmen, but new staff as well. UP has said goodbye to some familiar faces, like Fr. Gerry Olinger, who was known for the Sunday night cookies he baked for residents in Schoenfeldt and Fields Halls.

But although some staff have gone to other jobs, UP welcomed a new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, director of Residence Life, and vice president and general counsel. 

Here is a list of some of the new staff on campus, and those who have also been promoted or appointed to new positions within the university. This list may not include all the people hired or promoted this summer.
