Students interested in representing the student body on The University of Toledo Board of Trustees are encouraged to apply to be a student trustee by Friday, March 23.
Student trustees serve a two-year term and attend all board meetings, including corresponding committee meetings to which they are appointed, and report information to the Student Government at regular meetings.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for a student leader to have a voice at the table where decisions are made 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 at the time of nomination or appointment;
• 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.
Applications are available online on the Board of Trustees website. The application form includes a place for students to provide information on their time at UT, including any volunteer work, internships and activities.
Applications are being accepted for one of two student trustee positions and must be received by noon Friday, March 23, by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs in University Hall Room 3630.
The selection process involves an application review and interviews with Student Government. No more than five candidates will be submitted to the Ohio Governor’s Office for final selection.
The new trustee will replace Lucas D. Zastrow, who will complete his term in June. The new trustee will join Hedyeh Elahinia, a junior in the Jesup Scott Honors College who is studying biology, to represent the student body’s perspective and opinion on the board.
