Apply To Be the 2019-2020 Student Regent!

Are you looking for an opportunity to participate in high-level decision-making across the University system? The application for the Student Regent for the 2019-20 academic year is now open!

The University of Washington Board of Regents has the authority and responsibility to govern and set policy across the University. The Regents set mission and strategic direction, oversee financial resources and other assets, select and evaluate the University President, and establish institutional policies and procedures. The Student Regent has the responsibility to bring the student perspective to this table, and through this position, they are uniquely capable of facilitating relationships across the three campuses and impacting the budgetary policy and financial decision-making of the University.

In compensation for their time and service, the Student Regent receives a scholarship for tuition costs during their regency. Duties performed as Regent are reimbursed at the applicable per diem rate, in accordance with the Board policy. The time commitment required of the Student Regent is considerable. They may, but need not necessarily, accept additional UW employment, in any case not to exceed 100 percent time, as their schedule and coursework permit, but must decline any tuition or fee waiver associated with that employment.

Please reference this 2019-20_Student-Regent-Application pdf document for full details about the position and application, with the online application found here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Kaitlyn Zhou at, Associate Vice President for Student Life Lincoln Johnson (, or any of us.
