(Nov. 2, 2009)--Applications for a student regent position with the UT System Board of Regents will be accepted through November 16.

In 2005, the 79th Texas Legislature enacted Senate Bill 1227, which authorizes the governor to appoint a non-voting student regent to the UT System Board of Regents. Each UT System school may forward the names of five students interested in being considered for this important position. It is the responsibility of each school's student government to establish a process for selecting the students.

Students interested in this important position must meet these qualifications:

  • Must be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student in a general academic teaching institution or medical and dental unit in the UT System at the time of appointment and throughout the student regent's term
  • Must be able to attend Board of Regents meetings once per quarter
  • Must be willing to commit the time necessary to fulfill the duties of a regent

Applications for the student regent position will be available in the Office of Student Activities (University Center Room 1.210, Main Campus, or Durango Building Room 1.302, Downtown Campus) and the SGA office (University Center Room 1.214) and on the UTSA Student Government Association Web site. Completed applications are due at 5 p.m., Monday, Nov. 16.
