PSU Food Bank Basic Needs Statement Initiative

January 15, 2021 / PSU-AAUP

During these past months, especially after the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the Food Pantry has realized that there are still large gaps in students' knowledge about basic services available to them at Portland State.

To address this, the PSU Food Pantry has started a new initiative and we need your help in making it a success:

Basic Needs Statement Initiative

The goals of the initiative are to:

  • Get every professor and faculty member at Portland State to include the Basic Needs Statement in their syllabi
  • Have each college, school, and department include the Basic Needs Statement in their syllabi template
  • Increase the knowledge of the PSU Student Base about resources available at PSU
  • Increase the knowledge of the PSU Faculty about resources available at PSU

An example of the statement can be found at: basicneedsstatement.com
