Solutions Generator

Why wait to change our world? 

Solutions Generator is in a state of evolution. The next iteration of Solutions Generator will build on five years of successfully empowering students to create meaningful change on campus and in their communities. 

In recent years, students working on Solutions Generator projects helped drastically reduce the amount of bottled water consumed on campus, connected the University to educational gardens across Portland, created a nonprofit dedicated to diversity in sustainability, and linked students with migrant farmworkers in the Willamette Valley. 

Now we’re working to better connect the energy and success of student-driven projects with PSU’s sustainability goals in both curriculum and campus operations. 

As we recast Solutions Generator to expand opportunities for students to make meaningful change at Portland State and in our community, there will be no application process for Solutions Generator in the 2013-14 academic year. 

But we know that great ideas for a more sustainable campus, a more vibrant community, and a better world are out there. And we’d like to hear about them. What project idea is kicking around in your head that you would like to see be a part of the next generation of Solutions Generator? Complete the form blow to submit your idea. We’ll use these ideas to fuel our planning and let you know what comes next.
