Leadership Developement

​​Welcome to ​the Associated Students of Orange Coast College

Leadership Development and Governance Program.


We are the student governing body of Orange Coast College comprised of elected and appointed leaders along with numerous student staff members. The ASOCC has a rich history of service to Orange Coast College and the community. These efforts include the founding of the Harry and Grace Steele Children's Center, the Associated Students Bookstore, the Recycling Center, the Student Center, support of extra-curricular programs, and volunteer projects.

The program provides students an opportunity to develop their leadership skills through coursework and hands-on experience. Students' creativity, motivation, and talent drive all ASOCC program events and activities.

The ASOCC experience reaches beyond the notion of just being "more involved" at one's college. Students participating in ASOCC make decisions affecting the campus through service on college-wide committees, plan and execute events and activities, work alongside administrators, faculty, staff and peers, and study the art of leadership through hands on experience.

Scholarship and student participation is the cornerstone of the ASOCC - so come and join in on the experience by joining the ASOCC Program!

Please feel free to give us a call at (714) 432-5730, or stop by our office.

See you at Coast!
