Walker seeks applicants for student representative


Madison—Today, Governor Scott Walker announced he is seeking applicants for the student representative on the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents. The position is a student representative over the age of 18 to serve a two-year term. The representative must be enrolled at least half-time in a University of Wisconsin institution, be in good academic standing, be a Wisconsin resident, and be enrolled for their entire term. Please note that due to UW-Madison and UW-Parkside having been recently represented on the board, no applications will be accepted from these institutions.

The Board of Regents is responsible for establishing policies and rules for governing the System, planning to meet future state needs for collegiate education, setting admission standards and policies, as well as reviewing and approving university budgets. Regents are charged with establishing the regulatory framework within which the individual units are allowed to operate with as great a degree of autonomy as possible. Board members attend eight regular meetings per year, serve on special committees, serve as liaisons with at least two UW institutions, and perform related duties.

If you are interested in applying for the position, please submit the following:
