Marylhurst University to close by end of 2018
After nearly 125 years as a higher learning institution, Marylhurst University is closing its doors by 2018, according to their website and automated voicemail, following a vote by the Board of Trustees.
The large 50-acre property shall be returning to the “Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, who will make future plans for the property in alignment with their mission and values,” according to the website.
“Despite these efforts, we were unable to see a viable financial path that would have enabled us to sustain the high level of academic programming for which we have always strived and that would not cause harm to our students, faculty and staff,” the website said.
