Community Engagement


200,000 hours / 22.8 years:

The time our students spend in schools and mental health agencies each year.

Our students are part of the engine that keeps Portland running. Everything we do is rooted in communities.


From teaching to research to service, our students and faculty serve and collaborate with vibrant and varied schools, mental health agencies, professional organizations, community groups and individuals. Through our projects and programs, our students and faculty make change every day, whether it’s in a Portland classroom or a clinic in Mumbai.
