Meet Reiko Mia Williams

Reiko Mia Williams

Why am I running?

“It Takes A Village” reflects my life experiences. A black teenage parent, my Mother, took adult education programs (supported by an extended family) to earn her license as a practical nurse. While completing her B.A. in Nursing, she died of leukemia just before my 13th birthday.

A parent to three daughters myself, she has inspired me to serve communities that have helped me and others over time. Community colleges better support struggling families with affordable access to high-quality public education and workforce training while with childcare services, healthcare, housing, and other partners that help pave pathways to opportunity.

Who is Reiko?

Reiko's Priorities

Expand Access

Keep tuition affordable. Get our fair share of financial aid for students. Ensure teaching programs meet each students’ unique needs.

Promote Equity & Inclusion

Invest in programs to reduce racial, gender, and income gaps in student performance and completion. Diversify staff and instructors.

Value Collaboration, Transparency & Fiscal Accountability

Set clear goals for student success, community engagement, and fiscal accountability.

Improve Student Success and Public-Private Partnerships

Build workforce and career technical education partnerships between Portland Community College and businesses throughout the Metropolitan Area.
