Apply to be the next Student Regent

One of the most important leadership opportunities offered to University of California students is an appointment to serve on the UC Board of Regents. If you are interested in a University leadership position that will provide you with a rewarding and challenging experience, I encourage you to apply for the prestigious position of UC Student Regent.

The Student Regent position is a two-year commitment to serve as a member on the Board of Regents of the University of California. Since the inception of the Student Regent position in 1975, there has never been a student appointed from UC Santa Cruz. Help change our history.

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. The Student Regent's University academic and parking fees are waived for the two-year period. Additionally, a Student Regent will be reimbursed for expenses incurred for attending Regent board and committee meetings.

I encourage you to seriously consider this unique opportunity and get an early start completing the application by researching the essay questions and preparing your resume. I invite you to learn more about the Student Regent position by participating in an informational orientation that will be provided by the Dean of Students Office, as follows:

January 25th, Noon – 1:30 p.m. at Hahn Student Services Room No. 245
January 29th, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. at Hahn Student Services Room No. 245
