UC STUDENT REGENT The Online Home of the Student Regent and Student Regent-Designate of the University of California


The Student Regent and the Student Regent-Designate are student representatives on the UC Board of Regents. They are advocates: they take student concerns and student frustration to the Regents and to the UC’s top decision-makers. They are resources: they use their unique access to get information from those decision-makers and put it in the hands of student leaders. They are watchdogs: they attempt to hold the University accountable and work to create student-friendly outcomes.
