Applications are being accepted for students to join The University of Toledo Board of Trustees.

Students interested in representing the student body on the board are encouraged to apply by Friday, March 1.

The student trustee appointment is a two-year term in which the student attends board meetings, including corresponding committee meetings to which they are appointed, and reports information to the Student Government.

“We are seeking student leaders who are excited about the opportunity to get involved at the highest level and offer their insight into decisions that impact the University,” said Dr. Phillip “Flapp” Cockrell, vice president for student affairs.

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 UT student status;

• Enrolled full time when nominated or appointed;

• Enrolled for three semesters on a full-time basis at UT 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 UT, 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 1.

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 Hedyeh Elahinia, who completes her term in June. The new trustee will join Kyle D. Bergen, a third-year doctor of pharmacy student in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, to represent the student body on the board.
