Clackamas Community College Zone 6
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.

Community college enrollment fluctuates widely due to economic and other factors, requiring fluctuations in the pool of adjunct professors. How will you work with faculty unions and college administration to assure educational excellence is not impacted by changes in enrollment?
What initiatives would you take or support to improve graduation and transfer rates for low-income students and students of color?
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?
Las inscripciones en los colegios comunitarios fluctúan ampliamente por factores económicos y de otra índole, los cuales requieren también cambios en el grupo del profesorado adjunto. ¿Cómo trabajará usted con los sindicatos de docentes y con la administración de estos colegios para garantizar que la excelencia educativa no se vea afectada por los cambios en las inscripciones?
¿Qué iniciativas tomaría o apoyaría usted para mejorar los índices de graduación y transferencia para estudiantes de bajos ingresos y estudiantes de color?

Town Where You Live
Clackamas Community College Board since 2007. CCC Budget Committee; Bond Citizen Oversight Committee (co-chair), Presidential Search Committee (co-chair). CCC representative to Oregon Community College Association, as well as OCCA Executive and Membership committees. Oregon Student Success Center steering committee. Estacada School District Strategic Plan Committee. Current or former boards of Estacada Arts Commission; Clackamas County Arts Alliance; Estacada Food Bank; Estacada Together.
The Clackamas Community College Board of Education has strong relationships with our full-time faculty, part-time faculty and administrative employee groups. We greatly depend on adjunct professors for the flexibility needed to meet enrollment fluctuations, and also recognize the challenges they face and their needs for guaranteed health insurance and contract stipulated ratios for full and part time faculty. I have been supportive of SB551, which would guarantee health care for part time faculty that teach at multiple institutions. I also am particularly interested in finding creative ways to provide professional development opportunities to adjunct staff, similar to those received by new full-time faculty through the college's excellent Center for Teaching and Learning. I hope that these employee groups feel the respect and admiration that I and my fellow board members hold for them.
There are a number of creative initiatives focused on student success. Besides Guided Pathways, her are two others I feel strongly about.
Corequisite Support: Instead of requiring students to spend time and money on long sequences of remedial courses (courses that don't count toward a degree, add additional time to completion and do not recognize the strengths that students possess) the corequisite model allows students to enroll in college-level gateway courses while receiving the just-in-time support they need. It offers a clear solution to addressing institutional performance gaps that disproportionately affect Black and Latinx students and its success has been documented across the country.
Open Education Resources. Reducing the average $1200 annual cost for books by substituting excellent free or low cost versions will make college more affordable. I encourage a deep look at the potential of OER to aid in student success and completion.
It is essential that colleges provide easy-to-access services to our students. Examples include on-campus connections to county, state and federal programs that address these basic needs, guidance in filling out application forms, a range of counseling services, a robust food bank and clothes closet, access to affordable child care and transportation, a strong veteran's program. Clackamas Community College is working on all these fronts, and with the soon-to-open Wacheno Welcome Center, students can access these services in one place.
