“Diversity and Multicultural Student Services’ mission is to build and strengthen a sustainable, educationally diverse and co-curricular environment where all students have the access and support they need to achieve their educational goals.

We will accomplish this mission by providing structured support services to student populations whose access, retention, academic success and graduation are most challenged by social historical factors and contemporary inequities. We will provide a student-centered inclusive environment that enriches the university experience and engages both families and the community.”

“If you have served in uniform or are a dependent of someone who has, you may be unaware of the history of Portland State and its veteran population. While you may be choosing to pursue your higher education goals at Portland State University because of our high academic standards, our esteemed faculty or our proud reputation for innovation, it may surprise you to learn how rich and long PSU has been a school veterans have attended and will continue to attend.”

“All student veterans, active duty officers and dependents attending Portland State University can access the Department of Veterans Affairs through a full time VA counselor/coordinator. VetSuccess on Campus is a program through the Veterans Benefits Administration that places an experienced vocational counselor at a local college to provide assistance and support to veteran students and their eligible family members.  This counselor will serve as a ‘one-stop liaison’ for veterans on campus. PSU is one of only 20 campuses in the nation to have an on-campus counselor from the VA.”
