LEEDing Leadership

Portland State University RHA, NRHH, and Residence Life are proud to submit their bid intention to host the 2013 PACURH No Frills conference!

"After attending PACURH 2011, we could not help but think that Portland State would be the perfect venue to host a conference for our region. As a young member institution of PACURH, hosting a No Frills conference is a great opportunity for Portland State to showcase how sustainability is possible on an institutional level and how leadership can benefit from these practices. Student leaders passionate about sustainability and community have come together with RHA, NRHH, Housing & Residence Life, and the larger Portland State community to create a bid and presentation to provide the best No Frills conference PACURH has seen!

For No Frills 2013, our bid committee decided on the theme: LEEDing Leadership. As a university, Portland State has many values. Portland State’s commitment to sustainability is one value that is woven deeply into the campus culture. Our university has 8 LEED buildings that have attained ratings from silver to platinum (the highest LEED rating)."
