LOS ANGELES—The California State University Board of Trustees is responsible for the oversight of the system’s 23 schools. The 25-member group adopts the governing rules, regulations and policies of the campus, and now Talar Alexanian, a student at California State University, Northridge, has joined them.
Gov. Jerry Brown made the announcement of Alexanian’s appointment, which will last for two years. Alexanian will serve as the non-voting student trustee in her first year and assume the voting student trustee position—which is currently being held by Cipriano Vargas of California State University, San Marcos—in her second year.
At CSUN, Alexanian is pursuing a degree in journalism and public relations. This year she was chosen as vice president of CSUN’s Associated Students and was an upper-division senator from 2012 to 2013.
Alexanian has been a student representative for the CSU Admission Advisory Council since 2012 and was an events assistant at the CSUN Matador Involvement Center from 2011 to 2013.
She is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, the National Society of Leadership and Success, and the Public Relations Student Society of America.
