1. Student Regent Application: The University of Washington Board of Regents is the University’s governing body whose broad responsibilities are to supervise, coordinate, manage and regulate the University.  The Board of Regents consists of ten members, one of whom is a student.  The Student Regent represents the varying perspectives of students at the university – both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as students at the Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma campuses. The Student Regent is appointed by the governor to serve for one year.  The role and voice of Student Regent will be especially important in the coming academic year as the University is faced with many difficult decisions.  If you are interested in applying or would like more information, please click here.
