Student Trustee

The Student Trustee provides a unique and meaningful opportunity for direct student involvement in the governance of the university. The Office of the Senior Vice President for Student Life facilitates the annual search/nomination process for a new student member of Kent State’s Board of Trustees. Members are appointed to two-year terms by the governor and actively participate in meetings and other board-related events.
