Student Representatives

The Coordinating Board recognizes the benefits of inviting members of the higher education community to share their knowledge, perspective, and experience concerning diverse issues of policy and procedure. We also value open communication between students and the Coordinating Board on policy issues and decisions that affect student's lives. Student representation on the board and on advisory committees gives students a strong voice in higher education policy development.
