University president Fr. Mark Poorman, C.S.C.. and interim VP for financial affairs Eric Barger have notified the UP community that, in the face of unprecedented financial shortfalls due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University would be pausing employer contributions to retirement plans. Consistent with these prior messages, the Office of Human Resources will have a notice about this change mailed to all employees. You can also access a pdf of this notice at this link: Notice About Change of University of Portland’s Employer Contribution Rate for Retirement Plan.
As well, it has been a difficult week with the wild fires in Oregon. If you need any type of support, please let us know in Human Resources so we can support you.
