Student Member of the Board of Visitors
2013 - 2014 Academic Year
Roles and Functions of the Student Member
The Board of Visitors has maintained a position for the Student Member since 1983. The student may be either a graduate or undergraduate student of the University. The term of the Student Member is one year, beginning June 1. More than anything else, the Student Member serves as a soundboard for the Board of Visitors with regard to issues that affect students at the University. Although the Student Member does not have a vote on the Board, full members consider his or her voice equally among the opinions of others. Consequently, the Student Member must actively assess and predict the general student reaction to the Board's decisions.
Applications are being accepted for the Student Representative on the Board of Visitors. Candidates must be full time students whose completion of degree requirements is at least one year beyond the date of appointment to the Board of Visitors.
Criteria for Eligibility:
(all candidates should plan to hold the interview dates as noted)
Additional information is available from Susan Harris, Secretery to the Board of Visitors, at 924-7120. Students who apply for this position are encouraged to review the Manual of the Board of Visitors.
The current student member, Hillary Hurd, also would be happy to answer specific questions about the position. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2013-14 Student Member of the Board of Visitors. The application for the 2014-15 Student Member will be posted in late 2013.
