Clackamas Community College Zone 5

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?

Your Experience/Qualificatons I have a long history of serving on non-profit Boards focused on educating the BIPOC community about career opportunities in Information Technology. I've mentored students interested in an IT career, and helped them look for future opportunities. A focused priority I have is to support work that helps to close the Digital Divide and ensure all students have access to affordable high-speed Internet and supporting devices.

I believe open communication is important between the Board, faculty unions, and the college administration. Direct dialogue with faculty and administration on key changes to program changes or closures, faculty should be an active participant in the dialogue that will affect them. Close communication between the faculty, college administration, and the governing board is important to obtain positive outcomes. As such, any academic program reduction or elimination process should be created in collaboration with faculty and staff to help ensure any changes made are based on established criteria for academic program or subject area elimination as created by the community college.
BIPOC students disproportionally face systemic barriers to success at community colleges. To address this disparity and systematically increase completion rates, we need to reduce the equity gaps that exist at community colleges for this underserved community. I support the implementation of the Guided Pathways framework that outlines a process for achieving student completions. By implementing clear pathways for students to meet their end goal of a certificate or AAS degree, the Guided Pathways framework ensures students are learning using programs that are designed around a coherent set of learning outcomes and not just a set of courses. This has the outcome of increased completion and transfer rates, and reduced costs, for low-income and students of color.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown an increased need for support for students attending a community college. Community colleges should create a COVID-19 Relief Fund to support the basic needs of students during this crisis. While food and housing needs are primary areas of support needs, students also need access to high-speed Broadband internet service, computer devices to access the internet, tuition and fee coverage, and classroom materials to ensure education is accessible to all students. To support the basic needs insecurity, an ecosystem must be in place to ensure that students’ basic needs are being met. This need is particularly important for BIPOC students.
