About Us


Portland State University is Oregon's largest and most diverse public university located in the heart of one of America’s most progressive cities.

It offers more than 60 undergraduate and 40 graduate programs in fine and performing arts, liberal arts and sciences, business administration, education, urban and public affairs, social work, engineering and computer science. PSU offers more than 226 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.

The 50-acre downtown campus—with the motto "Let Knowledge Serve the City"—places students in a vibrant center of culture, business and technology. This allows students to participate in internships and community-based projects in these fields as well as education, social services, and government.

Portland State University’s mission is to enhance the intellectual, social, cultural and economic qualities of urban life by providing access throughout the life span to a quality liberal education for undergraduates and an appropriate array of professional and graduate programs especially relevant to metropolitan areas. The University conducts research and community service that support a high quality educational environment and reflect issues important to the region. It actively promotes the development of a network of educational institutions to serve the community.

PSU seeks talented individuals who understand our values and strategic goals and enjoy sharing ideas and collaborating in an environment of mutual respect to achieve those values and goals.  We are committed to leading through engagement and seek individuals who support this strategy.  Engagement describes Portland State’s collaborative approach to the exchange of knowledge and resources with local, regional, national, and global partners for the mutual benefit of students, faculty, staff, and the community.

One of our best benefits is our location. PSU is conveniently located in downtown Portland with easy access to shops, businesses, governmental services and easy transportation options. PSU and Portland are ideal for people on the go.

While you contribute your talent and enthusiasm to our growing urban University, as an eligible employee you will have access to outstanding health benefits, generous time off, fully paid pension plans, educational opportunities, and much more. You can visit our Total Compensation calculator to understand the value of our benefits.

Step out your door on the PSU campus and your choices are endless. Jump into a student group and make a difference. Discover a favorite food cart or watch an experimental film. Lounge on the Park Blocks or cheer on our team at a Vikings game. Life at PSU is an adventure. Our urban setting makes sure you’re not walled off from the city. The next step is yours.


Portland State University offers an excellent benefits package including 95% premium paid healthcare; a generous retirement and vacation package; and reduced tuition rates for employee, spouse, or dependant at any Oregon University Systems schools.


We honor, respect, embrace and value the unique contributions and perspectives of all students, faculty, employees, volunteers and our local and global communities.  Diversity includes age, culture, disability, gender, gender identity, national origin, protected veterans, marital status, social class, color, race, religion, sexual orientation, and diversity of thought.
