New on Neighborhood Pulse Gales Creek: Urban Expansion and the Future of Farming
Welcome to the Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies at Portland State University.

The Institute was created to better connect the university to issues of concern to communities in the six-county Portland-Vancouver Metropolitan Area, and to bring new attention to key issues of metropolitan significance.


The Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies is proud to be a member of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, which is a collaboration between the Urban Institute and local partners to further the development and use of neighborhood-level information systems in community-building and policymaking.
