Mt. Hood Community College Zone 4

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

A 2019 Hope Center Survey of approximately 8,100 Oregon community college students indicated a significant number of students experienced basic needs insecurity (41% were food insecure, 52% housing insecure, 20% homeless). What steps can community colleges take to help these students achieve their educational goals in the face of such challenges?

Much of this is governed by the contracts with our bargaining units. Our human resources departmentt and administration communicate with the board as enrollment and other matters affect staffing. The college conducts employee evaluations and surveys students, also.
We are aware that student success at every level of our education system is often determined by race and zip code. This must change. We are beginning by analyzing the data on student success, and have realized we need it broken down further. We are also educating our entire college, starting with the board, on cultural competence, bias and Critical Race Theory. The data and student feedback shows who exactly needs a different approach to be successful. We will make the culture change and take the other necessary steps so that all students know they are welcomed, safe, and respected - so that every student can be successful.
1. Right now there is a bill in the Oregon Legislature that would put in place a "Navigator" position at our community colleges, to assist students in navigating the maze of assistance programs that they may/may not qualify for. 2. Many colleges have asked faculty to put basic need referral information on their class syllabus. 3. At MHCC we have a student "hub" which is a one-stop shop for enrollment, programs, financial aid and other assistance such as SNAP. 4. Colleges should have on campus food banks to help with immediate hunger needs. 5. I strongly recommend that every college foundation have an emergency fund for students that is easy to access. This fund can help with an electric bill, a monthly rent shortfall, an unexpected car repair... those needs that happen and be a breaking point for a student. and cause them to drop out. 6. The Oregon legislature needs to dramatically increase funding for the Oregon Opportunity Grant, which is need based.
