About Research & Strategic Partnerships

Jonathan Fink

Vice President, Research and Strategic Partnerships

Welcome to Portland State University, where our students, faculty, and staff are helping to shape the future of one of the most progressive and innovative cities in the U.S. Our downtown Portland location offers limitless opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students to gain real-world experience through capstone projects and internships with businesses, government agencies, and non-profits. The lessons learned here are being applied to urbanizing regions across the country and throughout the world.

PSU is proud of its 65-year history and its reputation as an influential leader of the up-and-coming class of public, urban-serving research universities.  Our researchers embrace an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to societal problem-solving and are partners of choice for regional economic drivers and civic leaders such as Intel, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland Public Schools, and Portland General Electric.

Whether you are a scholar, business leader, civil servant, or student, we hope this website will help you find ways to engage with us in creating a more healthy, sustainable, and prosperous future.
