Clackamas Community College Zone 3
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?

During the past six years, I have consistently worked with CCC faculty, staff, administrators, and students to ensure that we treat staff fairly and serve students well. We are the only college in Oregon that maintains a ratio of full-time to part-time faculty to ensure that a majority of the faculty serving our students are full-time. We recently added health care benefits for our part-time faculty because they deserve it, becoming one of only three Oregon community colleges to do so. Most importantly, we fight hard for more adequate state and federal funding to ensure that no one at CCC gets short-changed.
I have led the fight to keep student tuition at CCC the lowest in the Portland/Vancouver area (and among the lowest statewide). We have added more advisors to help students successfully navigate their options with guided pathways. We have passed a diversity, equity, and inclusion policy, added a new Chief Diversity Officer, and diversified our board, faculty, and staff. We have significantly increased student scholarships and grown the CCC Foundation. We have successfully advocated for state laws that help CCC students more easily and seamlessly transfer their CCC credits to Oregon universities.
Keeping state funding up, tuition down, and scholarships up help improve the overall health and security of our CCC students. But we have also expanded our student food pantry, directed cash funding assistance directly to our students during this pandemic, and supported state legislation to better access federal food and housing assistance programs. During the next four years, I will also work to explore how we might utilize CCC's land to create more affordable housing options for students on our campuses.
