The student trustee is the student voice on the board of trustees.

The student trustee represents the interests of the entire community and provides perspective to ensure that future students will be well-served. In addition to serving on the board of trustees, the student trustee chairs the Student Advisory Committee, which provides a forum for communication and exchange of ideas, information, and concerns among students.

Eligibility, Elections, and Term of Office

To be eligible to run for student trustee, a student must be enrolled in at least five units at any Los Rios college. Student trustee elections are held during the spring semester every year. The term of office is one year and runs June through May.
