Student Union

The students of Diablo Valley College voted for the construction of a new Student Union Center in April of 1990. The Margaret Lesher Student Union Building serves as a laboratory of citizenship, training future leaders in social responsibility and leadership in democratic aspects of society. The idea became a reality on January 21, 1998 when the building was opened. Now DVC students can utilize the facilities and the services provided at the Student Union.
