Selection of the Student Regent
- The Student Regent is chosen through a rigorous process that begins with candidates applying to the Board of Associated Students of Arizona.
- The student Board forwards three final candidates to the local student government on campus where the nominees are confirmed and forwarded to the Governor's office.
- The Governor conducts interviews and nominates one student for the position.
- The Governor's nominee must be confirmed by the Arizona Senate.
- A student was first added to the Board in a non-voting position in 1978.
- The Student Regent was granted voting privileges during the 1989-90 term.
- A statute passed by the 44th Legislature (2000) added a second, non-voting student member to the Arizona Board of Regents.
- Student Regents are now appointed for two years; the first year is served as a non-voting member and the second year as the voting Student Regent.
