Established in 2006, the Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS) is a hub for integrating and accelerating sustainability research, education, and practice across the Portland State University campus and in the community. ISS launched its Sustainability Internship Program in 2009 to connect promising students with paid internships, where students develop the work-based skills and knowledge to become the next generation of leaders in the environmental field. Each year it sponsors approximately 40 students from Oregon; this year the program will place its 200th student.
Portland State University Foundation has been a Brainerd Foundation grantee since 2016.
