Student Success Projects

U.S. public higher education faces increasing challenges, including: changing models of educational delivery, declining state funding, alternative credentialing, demographic shifts in student populations, questions concerning the relevancy of the curriculum, increased cost, and increasing legislative scrutiny. Portland State University is not immune to these challenges.

reTHINK PSU, a presidential initiative at Portland State University, is a campus-wide effort to deliver an education that serves more students with better outcomes, while containing costs through curricular innovation, community engagement and effective use of technology. reTHINK PSU projects follow a well-designed reTHINK roadmap for developing solutions for challenges facing PSU.

A student experience roadmap was developed to capture a vision of the student experience that will be achieved through four projects: Interactive Degree Maps, Coordinated Service Network, Redesign myPSU, and Academic & Career Advising Redesign. These four projects aim to build the best student experience, reducing barriers and improving services to support students in their pathway to graduation.  The roadmap reflects input from various stakeholders and will help communicate the progress over the coming year.
