PORTLAND, Ore. (July 24,2023) – The adoption of Portland State University’s recently announced five-year athletic strategic plan is the direct by-product of the 500-page Athletic Operational Review completed by Collegiate Consulting as part of an intercollegiate athletic assessment.
“The Build the Ship strategic plan reflects the extensive research and engagement with members of the Viking community completed by Collegiate Consulting to provide a roadmap for a more vibrant, financially sustainable program,” stated outgoing Portland State president Steve Percy.
Interviewing more than 125 stakeholders and reviewing athletic data and budgets, Collegiate Consulting’s study provided the most comprehensive examination and recommendation for Portland State athletics.
Collegiate Consulting developed a six-year pro forma with a focus on increasing external revenue, setting forth specific goals for men’s basketball and football. External recommendations included expanding advancement’s role in athletics with increased staffing and revenue goals. Internal recommendations included developing annual review protocols, strategic installation of student-athlete compliance and wellness programs and additional administrative staffing positions.
In the past 24 months, Collegiate Consulting has completed six comprehensive intercollegiate athletic reviews across Division I, II and III.
