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 Wednesday, March 23.
Student trustees will serve a two-year term, 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 Valerie Walston, interim vice president for student affairs.
The requirements to apply to serve as a student trustee are:
• Must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above at the time of application;
• Must be able to fulfill the entire two-year term commitment with University of Toledo student status;
• Must be an enrolled full-time student at the time of nomination or appointment;
• Must have been enrolled for three semesters on a full-time basis at The University of Toledo prior to nomination and appointment;
• May not be under conduct probation or other disciplinary action;
• 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 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 on March 23.
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 Rupesh Boddapati who completes his term in June. The new trustee will join Anjali Phadke, a junior majoring in Bioengineering, to represent the student body’s perspective and opinion on the board.
