Ryan Liu, Pasadena City College alumnus, attorney, and nationally recognized advocate for accessible higher education, is running to represent Area 6 of the PCC District.
By Rena Kurlander
After graduating from PCC, Ryan went to Yale College, graduating with honors and distinction. Ryan then earned a Master of Science in Higher Education at the University of Oxford, with honors, and his Juris Doctor from Yale Law School, where he chaired the student government and represented veterans through Yale’s Veterans Legal Services Clinic.
Liu’s platform can be summarized with three points ensuring that PCC students can succeed in their education and careers, collaborating with the community, and promoting responsive leadership, according to his website. The website, RyanLiu.info was created July 21, 2022.
In a comment to Colorado Boulevard, Liu said:
Ten years ago, I started at PCC as a first-generation, low-income student. I couldn’t imagine the path that PCC would pave for me as the son of refugees and immigrants. PCC gave me the chance to afford college, become an attorney, and uplift my family. That’s why I’ve been involved at PCC and with higher education issues in the community all these years. And that’s why I’m now running for the PCC Board of Trustees to continue this mission of expanding access to higher education and job training in the area.”
Area 6 of the Pasadena City College District covers parts of El Monte, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Arcadia, and Temple City. Area 6 is currently represented by trustee John Martin. The election will take place on March 5, 2024.
