Co-Producing the City: UW Tacoma as an Anchor Institution

2015 Urban Studies Annual Debra Friedman Lecture

Wim Wiewel / President, Portland State University

PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY HAS LONG BEEN DEEPLY ENGAGED WITH ITS COMMUNITY. The relationships with business, government, civic and community organizations and institutions are becoming more and more institutionalized and permanent.

Based on his previous work in Chicago and Baltimore, PSU’s president WIM WIEWEL elevated and deepened PSU’s practice, which may hold insights for UW Tacoma.
