Madison, Wisconsin – Governor Scott Walker announced today that he is seeking applicants for the non-traditional student representative on the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents.
The undergraduate student representative must be at least 24 years of age and represent the views of non-traditional students, such as those who are employed or who are parents; this regent will serve for two years. 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 students from UW-River Falls and UW-Eau Claire having recently served on the board, no applications may 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, 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.
If you are interested in applying for the position, please submit the following:
Application: Online application, cover letter, resume, and essay
The online application will require uploading a cover letter, resume, and essay found on Governor Walker’s website: https://walker.wi.gov/apply-
The deadline for submitting application materials is noon on Friday, January 5, 2018. Potential applicants with questions about the appointments process may contact Dan Sievert at 608-266-1212.
