Mt. SAC offers multiple programs that students can get involved in. Associated Student Government is for any student looking to get involved in campus activities and also make a difference to the community.

Mt. SAC’s Associated Students Leadership Center offers five different leadership categories; executive board, senate, student court, inter-club court and college-wide committees.

Students have to apply for all of the categories above by filling out the online application. If you would like to be a part of the executive board, students would have to be in another category and be voted onto the board by peers.

According to the Associated Students page under the leadership and governance tab, students will be able to see what the five leadership categories entails.

Having Associated Student bodies on campus allow students to advocate for their interests and allow a sense of community throughout the student body.

Dani K Silva, the current AS president provides insight on how students can get involved, even if they have a busy schedule.

“The easiest way [to get involved] is to sit on a college wide committee,” Silva said.

The college wide committees are where Mt. SAC students can get involved in making decisions for the rest of the student body. These committees offer a voice to your fellow peers and meet roughly once a month.

“One thing you can do is come to public comment, Tuesdays at 3 p.m. and again at 4:30 we have our senate and our executive board meets and we open it up to public comment,” Silva said in regards to the easiest way students can make a difference on campus.

Public comments at these meetings have a three-minute timer that allows individuals to say anything that they would like during their time. The board is not allowed to respond but they will follow up with that individual regarding further plans.

For students that would like to be on the executive board and hold a position for the school, they would need to apply and qualify a semester in advance.

“If you are representing students, they want to make sure you can balance your personal life, your responsibilities, your transcripts because you are a student first and formorse and all of the extra stuff that a president or vice president would have to do,” Silva said.
