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 second 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?
Ryan Johnson is the Student Trustee for 2019-2020. He can be contacted at 661.722.6300, extension 6354 or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Life and Services office (T700 E1). 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 a student is elected she/he will be sworn in and seated with the Board at their May meeting. The Student Trustee will then serve for a term of one year.
STUDENT TRUSTEE CANDIDATES
When I first came to AVC I was undecided, but upon hearing in class how to stand up if ones rights are being violated, it had clicked for me, I was a political science major. With my passion for politics, I will apply all that I am learning to make strides for the students I will represent on campus and fight tirelessly to stand up for the students rights. I can contribute an ambition for positive change motivated by my own passion to create an inclusive, accessible, and memorable experience for all students at AVC.
My name is Din Le, and I am a freshman at AVC. Although I am new to this campus, I have a plethora of experiences on various school and district-wide policies at my former school, Highland High School. I was in the WASC Committee and the School Site Council as an active student representative, while maintaining the growth of my own Student Action Committee as the chairman. As active as I try to be, I am looking for opportunities to help provide for a positive school atmosphere and to get more student involvement. I hope you take me into consideration!
