Portland State University Civic Action Plan: Executive Summary

Created in affirmation of Portland State University’s signature to the Campus Compact 30th Anniversary Action Statement commitment.  

Civic Action Plan Implementation

The work toward actualizing this Civic Action plan has already begun at PSU. Monitoring of progress will be a collaborative effort facilitated by University Studies, the Office of Research and Strategic Partnerships, and the Partnerships Council, and reported as part of the PSU Strategic Plan progress monitoring. In considering what resources are required for the implementation of the plan, the need for a “Coordinator for Engagement” in University Studies was identified. The dates below outlines specific activities related to the timeline for realizing the Coordinator position as well as provides a possible outline for their first year of work.  Once the Coordinator is in place, some of the below listed activities can begin immediately.  Other activities may need additional resources for implementation.  Other activities may be added as the Civic Action Plan implementation progresses.  The Coordinator will work to identify those requests and work with UNST leadership, the Partnerships Council, the Office of Academic Innovation and other offices on campus to support this work and adjust this implementation plan accordingly.
