PSU Consortium for Professional Education
Preparing professionals to work effectively with all learners
The purpose of the GSE Consortium for Professional Education is to serve as an advisory body to Portland State University in review and evaluation of, and in making recommendation on the design, implementation, evaluation, and improvement of programs leading to licensure that are offered by the University.
