The Institute for Sustainable Solutions is pleased to welcome Scott Shlaes as Director of Development.
Scott brings with him a long history of fundraising, administration, and leadership in service of our region’s people and natural places. He previously served as Executive Director of Oregon Wild, and prior to that led fundraising and community engagement efforts for Impact Northwest.
In his role as Director of Development for Sustainability Initiatives, Scott will secure financial support for sustainability related efforts across all departments and colleges, including student scholarships and cutting-edge research. Each gift to sustainability at PSU is matched through the $25 million James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation challenge grant, which was awarded to Portland State in 2008.
