Campus Diversity Resources

Student Groups

Portland State’s students are diverse, community-minded, multicultural and creative. Our student groups are a reflection of that. Check out the latest list of student groups on campus. If you don’t see a group you are interested in, contact Student Activities and Leadership Programs (SALP) to find out whether a group that meets your interests is newly forming or to find out how to start a group yourself.

Accessibility

What is accessibility? An online, electronic, or built environment is only accessible if individuals with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services within the same time frame as individuals without disabilities. This department is designed for faculty, staff, and students seeking information on the availability and possibility of accessible online, electronic, and built environments at Portland State University.
