Staff Details

Kien Tru​ong (He/Him) - Chief of Staff

Born in the Southeast Asian country of Vietnam, Kien immigrated to the U.S. with his family in 2014 at the age of 17. Kien's intersectionality as a gay, immigrant, the first in his family to attend and graduate from high school and college, and from a working-class family has always motivated him to ensure that his community is a place that welcomes everyone regardless of who they are or where they come from. Particularly, Kien is passionate about access to higher education through a holistic student support approach, and immigrants and refugees rights. ​

Outside of work, Kien volunteers as the Executive Director for the Asian and Pacific Islander Community Coalition of Oregon, Treasurer for the Young Democrats of Oregon, and Co-Chair for the Multnomah County's Community Involvement Committee. His previous experience includes being the first Asian and immigrant to serve as the District Student Council Chair and Student Trustee on Portland Community College’s Board of Directors, Director of Professional Development to the National Association of Asian American Professionals, and Student Representative to the Association of College Unions International.

In his free time, Kien enjoys hanging out with his mom, listening to music, cleaning, and organizing personal fundraising projects for the community. ​
