The Chief of Staff serves as a liaison among ASPC President, Senators, and Staff. I provide logistical and advisory support to various initiatives spearheaded by Senators and Advocacy Directors, as well as communicating Senate needs to the Publicity Directors. I believe that the institution of student government can be a strong advocate for our peers, and am proud to help facilitate that work.
Hi! I’m Daniela (she/her/hers) and I’m a Junior majoring in Media Studies, minoring in Psychology. I’m so excited to be the Director of Title IX Advocacy which is a new position ASPC created this year. In this role, I work on issues of advocacy regarding Title IX, survivor support and preventative initiatives campus-wide. I’m also a member of President Starr’s Sexual Violence Intervention & Prevention (sVIP) Advisory Committee. In past semesters as an Advocate, I have worked extensively on supporting survivors directly, organizing events and improving access to the Heart Center (2nd floor of Walker Lounge!) As ASPC staff, I’m working more closely with administration and students to improve Pomona’s reporting and response procedures, ensuring that they are trauma-informed and survivor-centered.
I'm Ji Min Hwang, and I'm a sophomore. My pronouns are she/her.
As Director of Disability Advocacy, my role is to support students with disabilities; advocate for students with disabilities to the administration; and coordinate events in order to educate students on what having a disability means.
This year, I plan on creating events for students with disabilities to share their experiences on navigating Pomona, and information sessions to educate students in general on what having disabilities mean, and how the community can better support fellow students with disabilities.
As mental health director, I hope to advocate for the role of wellness in all we do at Pomona. I will devote time to sharing mental health resources with student leaders so that people feel not only aware but trusting of wellness avenues. As a wellness advocate on campus, I work with all mental health related groups and the administration so that we can collaborate. This collaboration focuses not only on events and campaigns but importantly, longer term policy and culture shifts. I hope to adapt this position according to student body needs, and encourage anyone with questions or suggestions to be in touch.
Hello! My name is Julián and I am a sophomore from Chicago, Illinois. I intend on double majoring in Politics and Chicanx/Latinx Studies with a minor in French. I am involved with That Saturday Group and the First Generation, Low-Income Scholars on campus, alongside being a sponsor for Gibson South. For this position, I envision being a line of contact between the ASPC senate and the students of Pomona College, making information and events accessible to the students and directing or facilitating conversation when student concerns or questions arise. I want to make sure that students are aware of and engaging with all of the amazing work the senate is doing throughout the year through Facebook and other platforms.
The secretary's position offers the ability to become directly involved in student government since it is directly under the president's staff! I'm hoping to be able to get a deeper understanding of how the student government works and what each of the student representatives are able to contribute to the overall campus climate. I am hoping to work with the president and other senators to be able to contribute to the discussion that happens around campus!

My name is Sean King Volke and I am a sophomore studying Economics and Politics. Outside of class, you might find me checking out books for you at the library or playing violin with the orchestra. As Elections Commissioner, I believe that ASPC is strongest when students trust that their leaders are elected fairly and for the right reasons. My goals are to be a welcoming guide for new candidates, an impartial interpreter of the Elections Code, and an enthusiastic promoter of ASPC.
Hello! My name is Soleil and I am a senior majoring in Politics and Art History. I grew up in New York City, which explains my obsession with good public transportation (specifically trains). This is my second year serving as a representative to the Board of Trustees, and I have loved the opportunity to represent the student body to the Board. My experiences with the Judicial Council, the Draper Center, RHS, and Admissions all serve to help me better advocate for students. You can find me at Frary every morning of the week. I am always more than happy to talk, and so feel free to reach out and we can chat over cup of Frary coffee!
As the Senior Class President, I oversee the Senior Class Committee and sit on the Board of Trustees Honorary Degrees Committee (which selects the commencement speaker). Our first goal as the Senior Class Committee is to throw 3-4 large class bonding events per semester (i.e. Welcome Back, Mimosa Brunch, Skyspace Soiree), foster a sense of community within the senior class, and overall, make our last year as enjoyable as possible! Our second goal, is to encourage participation in the senior gift, and reach the ambitious goal of 100% participation! As our events are primarily social spaces, we will work hard to ensure that they are safe and welcoming for all to attend, and a potential platform for people to share broader announcements. We welcome any and all collaborations, and if you have any ideas for events that you would like to see happen, please contact us!
