In 2005, the 79th Texas Legislature authorized the Governor to appoint a nonvoting student regent for each university or university system. The following session, the 80th Texas Legislature authorized the Governor to appoint a nonvoting student representative to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).
To aid the Governor in his selections, the chancellor of each university system must recommend students based on applications submitted by each president on behalf of the institution's student government organization. The student appointments serve a one-year term, from June 1st through May 31st of the following year. The UT System Student Regent and THECB Student Representative have the same rights as regularly appointed board members, except the right to vote or be counted towards a quorum for official board business. The positions serve without compensation, but will be reimbursed for expenses incurred during official Board business.
