The PSU Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS) is the central portal for sustainability at PSU, fostering innovative cross-disciplinary research, critical skill-building curriculum, and effective community engagement to solve sustainability challenges in Portland and beyond.
ISS is currently seeking a new director who will lead the Institute in its collaborative and transformative work within the University and throughout the region, and serve as steward of the Institute’s goals for an exceptional student experience, groundbreaking and applicable research, and vital community partnerships.
The Coalition of Communities of Color (CCC) seeks a new member of its team to lead its Environmental & Climate Justice Program. The program supports policies that price carbon in Oregon and provide economic and social benefit to communities of color. Specific near-term program objectives include building capacity in communities of color to advance climate solutions; reforming policy practices; shifting discourses that centralize the voices of those most impacted by environmental injustice and climate change; and strengthening relationships between environmental organizations and organizations of color. The successful candidate will be able to support the CCC’s vision of built power in communities of color to act and lead on environmental issues, and the presence of a strong social movement in Oregon for environmental and climate justice.
