At a recent dinner of PSU Foundation and University trustees, Portland State University President Wim Wiewel presented the Presidential Medal to Mark Rosenbaum in recognition of his distinguished advocacy and philanthropy to Portland State University and the Portland community.

The Portland State University Presidential Medal, first bestowed in 1976, is awarded to those dedicated leaders who have made countless contributions to PSU and the community. This is the fourth presidential medal awarded by President Wiewel in his tenure as president of PSU. 

“Mark is a visionary whose passion for Portland State is infectious and inspiring,” said Wiewel. “His legacy of giving continues to have a profound impact on the lives of our students and vibrancy of our community and for that we are truly grateful.”

A dedicated leader at PSU, Mark Rosenbaum joined the PSU Foundation Board of Trustees in 2009 and served as chair from 2014-2016 during a time of significant change.  A champion of the Portland community, he has recently served as Chair of the Tuality Community Hospital Board of Directors and Chair of the Portland Development Commission among many other positions.

Rosenbaum is President and CEO of Rosenbaum Financial, Inc., which provides integrated investment, estate and business succession planning to its West Coast clients.
