Get an Interdisciplinary Neuroscience track at Portland State - many majors cross-over!

This petition made change with 61 supporters!

We need your full support of the Campaign for Neuroscience at Portland State (CNaPS), an independent, student-led, grassroots public organization urgently working toward:

1- PSU’s integration of an Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Track by Winter 2018 or sooner (Interdisciplinary majors are cross-overs, or blends, of two areas of study, i.e.: neuroscience and psychology, or neuroscience and systems science)

2- Full faculty hire of our beloved, highly-valued, Adjunct Instructor, Bill Griesar, Ph.D.

CNaPS currently has:
 Over 160 surveys showing strong need to be in an Interdisciplinary Neuroscience track (Major) at PSU

 Mounting: signed petitions, positive publicity, letters of support, letters of endorsement, desire from other local educational institutions to build coalition with CNaPS and also with PSU in collaboration to create transferable course work. This is all from: PSU students, alumni, staff, faculty, student leadership organizations, local educational, civic engagement, and non-profit organizations involved in the greater Pacific Northwest Neuroscience community - a rising hub of national neuroscience education and research.

We comprise and represent a large interdisciplinary group spanning psychology, biology, chemistry, systems sciences, computer sciences, social work, sociology, mathematics, engineering, and many more disciplines that now cross over into the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience as it is in professional job markets today.

Many students have trail blazed this road before us, trying to get a neuroscience track at PSU, but have been unable to due to the fact that students only have about two years to assess the need, organize, and appeal for its implementation before they themselves graduate into the job market. This is why we urgently need this to happen now.

We are asking for this Interdisciplinary Neuroscience track integration to be interwoven into the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences at PSU by Winter 2018.

Those of us who work on this campaign do it out of love for the science, and is our way of giving back to our school, our peers, and those students who will enroll after we graduate. It might not happen in time for us to enjoy it, but we work tirelessly to ensure that it does happen for future students and current underclassmen.  

Please support us by signing this petition now with the ease of a mouse click, and thank you so very much for making a positive difference in the lives of so many!
