Amiko Matsumoto joined the Partnership for Public Service in January 2009 as a Senior Program Manager in Education and Outreach. She oversees a portfolio of programs designed to educate college and university populations about public service and inspire them to serve.
Amiko began her career in higher education as the Director of Community Service-Learning at Willamette University and later served as the Director of the Office of Community Service at George Washington University. These campus-community efforts sparked an interest in the broader landscape of community initiatives, leading Amiko to join the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency, where she served as the Program Coordinator for Higher Education in its Learn and Serve America program and most recently as a Special Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer, focusing on strategic initiatives.
Amiko earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Westmont College, a Master’s Degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration from the University of Vermont and a Master’s Degree in Education and Human Development at George Washington University.
She has presented trainings and workshops at local, regional and national conferences on topics ranging from implementing service initiatives to growing multicultural competencies to cultivating cross-sector relationships. In addition to her professional experience, she has served on local boards and on the Executive Council for ACPA, a national higher education association.
