What we do.
We host a variety of events as well as benefits for our student members.
We organize opportunities for students who are passionate about transportation to meet. These activities are organized with the goal of engaging in transportation through creative mediums as well, whether through watching a movie or through games.
The ITE-STEP organization takes pride in Oregon's role in leading the nation in transportation innovation. As part of this recognition we strive to take our students to transit, walking, biking, and ITS facilities where they may find themselves working in the future.
We provide a number of benefits to students who choose to become members of our organization. Some of these benefits include support for travel to conferences through funding, business card development, and conference material printing.
