Changemaker Stories: Ian Stude


Ian Stude, director of transportation and parking services at Portland State, bike commutes to campus every day. Over the past ten years, he has worked to make bicycle commuting more accessible to PSU students and employees—launching an on campus bike co-op, an affordable bike rental program, and an annual bike commute challenge, as well as collaborating with the city of Portland to develop better bicycle infrastructure on and around campus.

Portland State University is part of the Ashoka U Changemaker Campus consortium, a select group of institutions of higher education that demonstrate commitment and cutting edge approaches to galvanizing solutions to major human and environmental challenges. Ashoka believes in an "Everyone a Changemaker" world. So does Portland State.
