Conference Sponsorship Proceeds at Work
Sponsorship proceeds not only enable Portland State to produce a high quality event, but also provide essential operating funds for the Center for Real Estate, supporting research and student services. Sponsorship funds from prior conferences have accelerated the achievement of the Center’s mission to attract, educate and place students desiring to work in the commercial real estate industry. With the launch of PSU’s Master in Real Estate Development program in 2012, sponsorship dollars are critical to the successful recruitment and placement of these graduate students within the commercial real estate industry.
