Welcome to the Peralta Community College Student Government home page

Through active participation in student government, campus clubs, and student work opportunities like being Ambassadors, students can voice their opinions, advocate for change, and make a real impact on campus life. Student leaders, including student club leaders and student workers, are dedicated to representing the diverse needs and interests of their student body, working collaboratively with classified professionals, faculty, and administrators to create a positive and inclusive campus community.

Students have two representatives serving on the Board of Trustees. You can learn more about Student Trustees Natasha Masand and Naomi Vasquez by visiting the Board of Trustees "About the Trustees" page.
