Becky Sanchez serves as the Executive Director of Undergraduate Programs in The School of Business where she is responsible for managing the student experience in the undergraduate program. She oversees all School of Business undergraduate student services, programming, and operational aspects. When asked what she does, she says that she identifies barriers that exist for students and works to eliminate them or help students overcome them. 

Becky grew up at PSU. Her father spent his career working in Facilities at Portland State and he instilled in her a sense of pride and appreciation for the work that PSU does for the community and for students. Becky has been at Portland State for twenty-two years, beginning in the PSU mailroom as a student employee. Becky has been focused on improving the student experience at PSU for the past seventeen years. Formerly a professional advisor and career counselor, she uses her experience serving students to inform the development of programmatic innovations in student recruitment, retention, degree completion, and career placement. 

Becky also teaches career preparation courses, internship and practicum skills classes, and formerly taught college success courses. She loves helping students with their career planning and seeing them achieve professional success. 

Becky completed a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Marketing in ’03, a Master’s degree in Counseling in ’08, and a Doctorate in Education with a focus on Postsecondary Educational Leadership in ‘20. All of Becky’s degrees are from PSU, and some say Becky loves PSU so much that she bleeds green.
