The motto at Portland State University on Wednesday, Nov. 20 was, “Why mess with a good thing?”
PCC President Jeremy Brown and PSU President Wim Wievel got together and re-signed an updated version of their dual admissions agreement at the university in downtown Portland. The signing capped a day of meetings that Brown and his staff had with university officials, including a guided tour of PSU. In 2000, the two schools developed a co-admission agreement to facilitate student transfers between the two institutions. Since that time, thousands of students have benefited from this collaboration. The signing recognized this partnership’s updates that have been implemented to better accommodate student and institution needs.
The agreement is designed to assist students by reducing barriers, promoting transition between institutions, and facilitating academic success. Additionally, this partnership will help to deepen and broaden the already strong relationship between PSU and PCC.
