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.

Student Representative to the Board

Beginning June 1 and ending May 31, a student, nominated through the student government of each institution and appointed by the Governor, serves on the Board as a non-voting representative.  This is a great opportunity for a student to get a broad view of policy development.  For qualifications and to apply see links below.

Student Representative to an Advisory Committee 

Students nominated through the president's office of each institution and selected by Coordinating Board staff may serve on one of five advisory committees for a two-year term beginning June 1 and ending May 31:  ApplyTexas, Learning Technology, Financial Aid, Graduate Education, and the Undergraduate Education Advisory Committees.  The student perspective is very valuable to these committees.  Application and additional material for the student representatives to an advisory committee may be emailed to the address below.
