Approved by the:	Student Senate November 13, 1997

RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE REGENT SELECTION PROCESS


Whereas, the state legislature will be debating several bills concerning the selection of members to the Board of Regents,

Whereas, several of these bills contain language which specify the removal of the student regent,

Whereas, removal of the student regent slot would not guarantee a student presence upon the Board of Regents,

Whereas, a lack of a student perspective may prove detrimental to promotion of diversity in the decision-making processes on the Board of Regents,

Therefore, be it resolved, that the Student Senate advocates the preservation of the student regent position upon the Board of Regents, and proposes that the clauses concerning removal of the student regent be dropped from the pending bills in the state legislature.
