Be the Next Student Regent
by David Hoffman
The University System of Maryland encompasses 12 institutions including UMBC and two regional higher education centers. It employs more than 14,000 faculty members and owns more than 1,000 buildings. Its annual operating budget is more than $4.5 billion. There are more than 180,000 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at its various institutions. But only one of them gets to participate directly in the decisions of the Board of Regents, the system's governing body. Three times in the past ten years, that one student--the Student Regent--has come from UMBC. Could you be next?
Please take a look at this description of the Student Regent position and application, and consider applying. Please also pass the information along to friends who may be interested. The student selected will serve from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.
The application deadline isMonday, November 5th at 5:00 P.M. Submit completed applications in hard copy to my mailbox in the Office of Student Life, Commons 336, and also email the application form and essays to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
