Meet the Officers and learn more about the CSUSM Student Human Development (HD) Club


What is Human Development Club?

The Human Development Club’s primary goal is to present club members with the opportunity to experience and serve in various fields related to the Human Development major including volunteer opportunities, club, and non-profit partnership fundraising, and unilateral events with other CSUSM clubs.

Meet our HD Club Officers:
Riley Bender, President
Fernanda Parra, Public Relations
Monserrat Fajard, Treasurer
Andrea Parra, Fundraiser
Linda Leon, Vice President
Beverly Lemus, Secretary

The first HD Club meeting of the spring semester will be next Thursday, February 1 at 12pm (U-hour) in University Hall 237. The first meeting is an introductory meeting and officers will be covering details about HD club events and membership. The HD Club offers students a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow students and build community within HD. The faculty is welcome to attend meetings and I hope you will. Pizza or some other type of food is usually provided for students (and faculty) who attend.
