Transportation and Communities 2018: Academy Edition ● September 13 - 14, 2018 at Portland State University
In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we’re trying something a little different. Instead of brief sessions that introduce you to a topic– we will be offering fifteen half-day workshops that focus on skill building and providing the tools to apply the latest research to practice. These will be hands-on, immersive learning experiences in a small classroom setting. Hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. Supported by our U.S. DOT grant-funded consortium: the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC).

⇨CLICK HERE TO REGISTER⇦ This event is a la carte, and pricing is per workshop. You may attend as few as one, or as many as four workshops. Questions? Contact us at asktrec@pdx.edu.  Let us know if you’re a student interested in volunteering, and we’ll be in touch later this summer.
  • Half-Day Workshop (general admission): $95
  • Half-Day Workshop (student rate / elected government officials rate): $50
