PSU Advocates

Stand with us in support of Portland State University!

Any alumnus or friend of Portland State University can become a PSU Advocate.

PSU Advocates is a network of alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and friends who share a commitment to higher education and to Portland State University. Volunteers work to communicate and promote the goals, needs, and the accomplishments of supporting an outstanding teaching and research institution in Portland.

PSU Advocates know the University needs effective voices speaking together to keep the Portland State University strong.

Make your voice heard in Oregon and across the country by talking with your elected officials about the issues that are important to you and the university.
