Abstract:Over the past decade, Portland State University (PSU) has received consistent national accolades for its innovative, engaged approaches to student learning. More recently, PSU has expanded its emphasis on engaged research and has more intentionally highlighted its institutional partnerships and impact on the region. A current (2006-07) university-wide planning process has, for the first time, explicitly established “engagement” in learning, in scholarship, and in institutional partnerships as PSU's “core leadership position.” As such, engagement will guide university goal setting, budgetary decision-making, and priorities for PSU's next capital campaign. This paper discusses the evolution of PSU's commitment to engagement and current and future implications for fund raising at PSU and beyond.International Journal of Educational Advancement (2007) 7, 117-130. doi:10.1057/palgrave.ijea.2150052
