Friday, March 6, is the deadline for students to apply to sit on The University of Toledo Board of Trustees and represent their peers.
The student trustee appointment is a two-year term in which the student attends board meetings, including some corresponding committee meetings, and reports information to Student Government.
“This is an incredible opportunity for student leaders to be involved with the decision-making processes that affect the campus community,” said Dr. Phillip “Flapp” Cockrell, vice president for student affairs and vice provost.
The requirements to apply to serve as a student trustee are:
• A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above;
• Ability to fulfill the two-year term commitment with UToledo student status;
• Enrolled full time when nominated or appointed;
• Enrolled for three semesters on a full-time basis at the University prior to nomination and appointment;
• Not under conduct probation or other disciplinary action; and
• Be a registered Ohio voter.
To apply, a student needs to complete the application available online on the Board of Trustees website. The form includes a place for students to provide information on their time at UToledo, including any volunteer work, internships or activities.
Applications are being accepted for one of two student trustee positions and must be submitted to the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs in University Hall Room 3630 by noon Friday, March 6.
Following an application review and interviews with Student Government, up to five candidates will be submitted to the Ohio Governor’s Office for final selection.
The new trustee will replace Kyle D. Bergen, who completes his term in June, and join Rebecca K. Dangler, a senior majoring in accounting and finance, to represent the student body on the board.
