The San Diego Community College District is governed by its five-member, locally elected
Board of Trustees and a student board member. The five trustees are elected in even-numbered
years to four-year terms by the voters of San Diego. Trustee candidates first run
in district-only elections. The top two vote-getters in each district run citywide
in the general election. See a map of trustee district boundaries.
Three students (one from each college) serve a one year term filling the student trustee
position on a rotating basis. The sitting student trustee has an advisory vote on
, the district's chief executive officer, is responsible for carrying out policies
approved by the Board of Trustees. Communicating with the Board
