MADISON (WSAU) Governor Scott Walker is taking applications for a new student member on the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents. The new person will replace Katherine Pointer, whose term expires May 1st.
Student members serve for two years. They must be Wisconsin residents at least 18, enrolled half-time or more in a U-W school, and in good academic standing. They must also stay in school for the entire two-year term.
Applications are available online at Walker-Dot-WI-Dot-Gov. They must be submitted to the governor’s office by February 20th. Students from Madison and Parkside will not be considered, because both those schools have been recently represented on the Board of Regents, which sets policies for the 26-campus U-W System.
