Nora Quiros

Department Manager

MBA, Marylhurst University

I have over ten years of experience working in higher education, including eight years at Portland State in the Honors College and the Department of International and Global Studies. I worked for two years as the Executive Assistant to the Provost at Marylhurst University. My strengths are event coordination and project management. I joined the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning in September 2018.

What Nora has to say...

BEST PARTS OF JOB:  Working with my peers across the university behind the scenes to support the work and research of faculty and students.

ADVICE FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS: Go to your professor’s office hours early in the term, even if you don’t have any questions. Technology wise, ask the Library to recommend citation management software because it will save you time and keep you organized.  

FAVORITE CITIES: Copenhagen, London, and Portland.

FAVORITE URBAN PLACES:
Beautiful public libraries, urban parks, and cities with free museums.

FAVORITE NON-URBAN PLACES:
The beach! I love ocean swimming.

WHEN NOT AT PSU I... love reading, camping, and knitting sweaters for animals.

RECENT TRAVEL: Denver, CO and Stockholm, Sweden.
