Ivan Hernandez is a student at Diablo Valley College (DVC) majoring in Computer Science. Ivan has served as the Vice Chair of Region III Student Senate for California Community Colleges, President of Student Government at DVC (ASDVC), and was recently elected as Vice President of the Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC). Ivan is particularly passionate about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Anti-racism, and Accessibility (DEIAA) efforts that align with the needs of community college students.
