UC Student Regent, Regent-designate to visit campus Friday

UC student Regent Jonathan Stein and Regent-designate Cinthia Flores will visit the UC Davis campus Friday to speak about the 2014-15 student regent application.

The event, scheduled to take place in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Student Community Center from 10 to 11:30 a.m., will address how to apply for the student regent position, as well as challenges facing the UC. Friday’s event will also include free pizza.

The student regent is a voting member of the board of regents. Serving a one-year term, he or she establishes policy in various areas including student fees and admissions.
The appointee is given the regent-designate title prior to the July 2014 commencement. All mandatory University fees and tuition are waived for the student regent during the year he or she serves in the position, according to the UC Regent webpage.

At the time of application submission, the applicant must be an undergraduate, graduate or professional student, in good academic standing at a UC campus.

The application is due Feb. 28 and can be found online at regents.universityofcalifornia.edu/app14.pdf.
