Calling all students: Become a student regent and shape the future of UC

The University of California Board of Regents is looking for the next student representative to serve on UC’s governing body. The Student Regent is a full voting member of the board, representing more than 270,000 graduate and undergraduate students across the university’s 10-campus system. This important role brings the voice and perspectives of students to the significant issues and decisions before the board, shaping the university experience and the future of UC.

The Student Regent has the opportunity to visit students on all UC campuses, grow a network of state and UC leaders, and influence university policies. The position also comes with a full waiver of all tuition and fees during the two years of service.

“This is one of the most impactful roles students can have while at UC,” said current Student Regent Devon Graves. “The Student Regent serves a vital and direct role in the governance of the system – the voice of every student enrolled at UC, providing Regents with first-hand student perspectives on important issues and having a vote in every board decision.”

Student Regents serve two-year terms, holding the Regent-designate position for the first year and becoming a full voting member during the second.

Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are being accepted through March, 31, 2019. To qualify, the applicant must be in good standing at the time of application. Each campus will hold information sessions from January 17 to March 5.
