Governor Walker seeks “non-trad” student regent
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced Monday he is seeking applicants for a non-traditional student representative on the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents. Applicants must be undergraduate students, at least 24 years old, and who will represent the views of non-traditional students, such as those who are employed or who are parents. This representative will serve for two years.
The student 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.
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, reviewing and approving university budgets, and 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.
Interested students are asked to submit a cover letter, resume, and an application found at www.walker.wi.gov the governor's website (select the "Boards/Commissions" tab under the "Serve" tab at the bottom of the page)
Student can submit complete application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by email or mail them to:
