District Student Trustee Election Information

The Student Trustee Elections procedure reflects the intent of the District to afford all students enrolled in the District colleges an opportunity to participate in the annual election of the Student Trustee while still embracing the practice of rotating the position among the three colleges of the District. It is important that the Student Trustee campaign and election be conducted in an ethical manner from application through election. The Student Trustee position is the student representative of the District colleges and serves as a nonvoting member of the District Governing Board.
