Portland State University


Portland State University launched Oregon MESA in 1989 for the purpose of encouraging greater participation from underrepresented students in STEM. Housed at the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science at PSU, our location allows us to host workshops and events that give students exposure to college classrooms, campus and student role models.
