Associated Students Government



The student Activities/Governance Program is an essential and fundamental part of the college's educational mission. As the center of college community life, it serves as a laboratory of citizenship, training students in social responsibility and for leadership in our democracy. Through its various committees and staff, it provides a cultural, social and recreational program aiming to make free-time activity a cooperative factor with study in education.
In all its processes it encourages self-directed activity, giving maximum opportunity for self-realization and for growth in individual social competency and group effectiveness. Its goal is the development of the total person as well as stimulating the intellect. Student Activities/Governance Program serves as a unifying force in the life of the college, cultivating enduring regard for and loyalty of the college.

Please welcome our new Associated Students Government President for 2021-2022, Javier Melara! 


Hello Imperial Valley College, 

My name is Javier Melara, I am the 2021-2022 Associated Students Government President. I was born and raised in Mexicali. After finishing elementary school, I started attending school in Calexico, and I am a proud Calexico High School graduate. I have firsthand experience and know the challenges of being new student, of learning a new language, and I want everyone to know what I am here for you as we are all one community, one home.

I started studying at Imperial Valley College this past Fall 2020, remote learning has been a new experience for me, therefore it is one of my goals to help students enrolled at Imperial Valley College have a smooth transition and ensure their experience at the college is enjoyable. 

ASG has been instrumental in building my leadership skills and identify my focus on life. Though the past year has been a hard year for many of us, it is critical to acknowledge that we can still find moments of light within all the dark. I wish you all a great academic school year. 

As you embark on this journey, please remember that no matter where you came from, where you are going, make your time at Imperial Valley the best you can, and you can count on me to support you through the process.

Javier Melara
