Portland State University's participation in the Urban Universities Portfolio Project represented a rare collaboration among institutional researchers and faculty members on a major campus initiative. At PSU, the hands of institutional researchers came together with the minds of faculty members to bring the portfolio to life on the Web. The result was a creative partnership that addressed important issues surrounding institutional mission and its relationship to planning, assessment, and accountability.
