Enrique Farrera is an Academic Advisor and Career Coach at Clackamas Community College (CCC). Enrique’s work consists of helping students enroll in college, navigating the college system, supporting students to graduation, and assisting them in their transfer path to a four-year college.

He is the son of immigrants. His mother cleaned houses, and he helped the family where he could. Enrique is a first-generation immigrant, and he grew up in Mexico, San Diego, CA, and eventually settled his roots in Oregon. Enrique gives credit to educators, who are the pillars of his journey, for his success. Today, he dedicates himself to helping others during their academic journey.

Enrique’s passion for education and the labor movement is strong, as they are the only forces that advance societies’ working conditions and promote social equality. He was a building representative, grievance chair, bargaining team member, Higher Education Coordinating Commission Commissioner, and sat on the NEA Board of Directors. He believes that the power of educators allows people to escape poverty and change the world.

More members means a stronger union. And as a stronger OEA, we can more effectively bargain for good wages and benefits, so we can focus on our students. That's why I'm proud to be a member of OEA.

Together we're stronger. Together we're heard.
