In 2005, the Texas Legislature created the position of Student Regent. Each year, the governor appoints 10 student regents to serve as non-voting participants on the governing boards of Texas' university systems and independent institutions. The governor also appoints a Student Representative to serve on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Qualified students who are interested in applying for these positions must complete the applications below and submit them to the Office of the President of their institution.
Applications for student regent and THECB representative are now closed.
