Welcome to the Center for Middle East Studies! The mission of the Middle East Studies Center is to promote and facilitate research, teaching, faculty training and development, and public awareness on all regions of the Middle East

The Center's core responsibilities are academic: to help sponsor conferences, speakers, training programs, and other relevant events and activities related to Middle East studies. The Center further seeks to guide and train students who plan to make a career in this field. To support these initiatives, the Center will work, as necessary, with academic and administrative units across campus, and devise strategic plans, both for strengthening and developing Middle East studies at Portland State and for building academic and administrative ties to the Middle East itself. As an outgrowth of these core responsibilities, it will also conduct outreach activities with local, national, and international educational and community organizations.
