Chief of Staff

Elena Gonzalez

Hey Toreros!

My name is Elena Gonzalez and I am excited to serve as your Chief of Staff for the 2018-2019 school year. I am a senior double majoring in International Relations and Spanish. During my time here at USD, I have gotten involved with many different student organizations, and have dedicated myself to various leadership positions.

I am currently the president of USD Border Angels and have served the organization in the past as our Internal Community Chair. I am also the current Community Outreach chair for FAMA, Folklórico and Mariachi Association. In my previous semesters I served as Co-chair and programmer for our Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán as well as took on the role Chair for Chicanx/Latinx Graduation for the past two years.

This will be my first time on AS but I am sure that my experience working with various orgs on campus will allow me to really voice any issues or concerns that current students may feel. My goal is to bridge the gap and strengthen the relationship between Associate Students and student orgs in hopes to increase involvement and to also create new spaces for collaboration. I also hope to continue efforts to make our campus and community more inclusive and accessible to all.

I cannot wait to see what this new year brings for us all and to spark change!
