One of the most important leadership opportunities offered to UC students is an appointment to serve on the UC Board of Regents. Within the Santa Cruz campus community, there are many students with outstanding leadership abilities. If you know of a student with the talent for a prestigious University leadership position, I encourage you to email the student's name and contact information to studentregent@ucsc.edu.

A candidate for the position of student Regent must be an enrolled undergraduate, graduate, or professional student in good academic standing for the two year duration of the student Regent term. The student Regent's academic and parking fees are waived for the two year period. Additionally, a student Regent will be reimbursed for expenses incurred for attendance at Regental and committee meetings.

Interested students may obtain an application at the Career Center, colleges, and various departments across campus, or download an application at http://www2.ucsc.edu/careers/jobs/regent.html. Applications are due no later than February 19, 2009. Students are encouraged to get an early start in completing the application by researching the essay questions and preparing a resume during the Winter break.

Let's make our campus proud and create history by ensuring that the next student Regent is a UCSC student.
