Nohad and Dirce Toulan Memorial


Nohad and Dirce were and will forever be the first couple of the College of Urban and Public Affairs.  But just as they worked together to build our College and Portland State University, they also worked tirelessly to make the Portland Metropolitan region the wonderful place it is.  Their commitment and contribution to service, the community and to higher education leaves us all in their debt. Perhaps more importantly, at the core of who they were and how they lived was a deep sense of integrity, compassion, and social justice that is a lasting lesson for all of us.  The Toulan’s passionately supported the students of the College of Urban and Public Affairs and created the Nohad and Dirce Toulan Endowed Scholarship to provide needed resources to graduate students in the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning.  Because of the generosity of many friends and colleagues, the College of Urban and Public Affairs will award the first scholarships from the Toulan Endowed Scholarship this year.  The impact of the Toulan’s work can been seen worldwide and will continue in the accomplishments of generations of future Toulan scholarship recipients.  Your support will ensure that we continue to honor the amazing legacy of Nohad and Dirce Toulan.
