Karina Maureira was sworn in as the Student Trustee for the 2013-14 academic year on July 24, 2013. 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 Board know how the student trustee stands on issues and strengthens the student role in the college's shared governance process.
A 20-year-old San Dimas resident, Maureira is studying communications at Mt. SAC. She has served as a senator with the Mt. SAC Associated Students (student government) for the past two years. She is an Honors Program student and has held membership in the campus chapter of Alpha Gamma Sigma, the California Community College scholastic honor society. Off campus, she works for her family's business management company.
Maureira plans to transfer to UCLA to complete her bachelor's degree in communications.
