Student Development: Student Trustee

What does the Student Trustee do?

The student trustee offers a student's perspective and advice to the Board of Trustees at monthly and special Board meetings.  The student trustee is educated on upcoming programs, policies and expenses that will be presented to the Board for approval.  Using knowledge collected from the college's history, administrators, faculty, staff but most importantly the students, she/he will or will not approve of the communications presented for approval.

When are Board Meetings and why should a student care?

The Board of Trustees meets on the secondt Monday of the month at 6:30 and occasionally for special sessions in the Board Room (SSV 151).  Some of the most important programs, dates and expenses are approved by the Board of Trustees. 

Who is the Student Trustee?

Russell Bierle is the Student Trustee for 2012-2013.  He can be contacted at 661.722.6300, extension 6354 or emailed at student_trustee@avc.edu

How is the Student Trustee elected?

In April, those who wish to run must fill out a letter of intent at the Office of Student Development and College Activities (SSV 180). The letter of intent is mandatory--there are no write-in candidates.  In April, start looking for flyers that advertise the dates of the election of the Student Trustee and Associated Student Body Officers because they vary from year to year.   After the student is elected sometime in April, she/he will be sworn in and seated with the Board at their June meeting.  The Student Trustee will then serve for a term of one year.
