Faculty in the News

What if a unique, meaningful, mutually beneficial relationship could be formed between Oregon and the country of Vietnam? That conversation between Legislative Affairs and Communications Manager, Andrea Fogue, and Portland State University Professor, Marcus Ingle, served as the starting point for Andrea’s EMPA Capstone project. That Capstone became the catalyst for a dynamic partnership convened by Portland State University (PSU) in 2014 known as the Vietnam-Oregon Initiative (VOI).

PSU is working with the Quang Nam Province and the city of Hoi An as the two sides use sustainability to encourage economic development through an “eco-city” strategy. Marcus Ingle suggests that "Oregon has a unique opportunity for a two-way exchange to aid in green technology adoption."
