Call for Nominations: 2015 Excellence in Sustainability Awards

At PSU, we believe that higher education has the potential to address the world’s most pressing and complex challenges through the integrated approach of sustainability. Because it requires knowledge from every field, sustainability at Portland State is not based in any single department. Instead, it spans the University to unite creative thinkers from across campus and throughout our community. These awards recognize the individuals advancing sustainability excellence at Portland State.

We invite nominations for the 2015 Excellence in Sustainability Awards. Please click on an awards category below to begin the nomination process.

All nominations must be completed by April 15, 2015 and awards will be announced at the 8th Annual Sustainability Celebration on May 28th. DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS EXTENDED TO MIDNIGHT, APRIL 22.
