Ann Cudd will step into the leadership role at PSU in August
Portland State University’s Board of Trustees has decided on the school’s next leader.
The board voted unanimously at a meeting Friday to name Ann Cudd as PSU’s new president, following contract negotiations that began late last month.
Cudd is Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor at the University of Pittsburgh. She will start her new role at Portland State, Oregon’s largest urban university, in August.
“We’re going to continue and build on the legacy of Portland State as a producer of knowledge that serves the beautiful, progressive, creative city of Portland, and through it the state, the nation and the world,” Cudd said Friday.
