Elisa Marin was sworn in as the student trustee for the 2012-13 academic year on July 25, 2012. She serves a one-year term, representing students’ interests and perspectives on policy issues that come before Mt. SAC’s governing board.
Student trustees have only an advisory vote, which does not count toward the passage or failure of a motion. The advisory vote helps the trustees know how the student trustee stands on issues and strengthens the student role in the college's shared governance process.
Marin, a 22-year-old West Covina resident, is studying international relations at Mt. SAC. She has served as a senator with the Associated Students (student government). She also holds memberships in the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) club and the college’s Rotaract chapter, the Rotary International youth program. Off campus, she volunteers for the California Mental Health Connection in Baldwin Park.
After graduating from Mt. SAC, Elisa plans to transfer to USC to complete her bachelor’s degree in international relations.
