About Our Trustee Student Liaisons

The University of New England offers a leadership opportunity for two students each year to serve as Trustee Student Liaisons, attending all regular meetings of the Academic, Research, and Student Affairs Committee of the board of trustees.

The liaison’s role is to bring the student perspective to the committee, to participate in discussions, to keep students informed as to actions taken by the board, and to build community across colleges and campuses working with each of the student government organizations. The liaisons will also co-chair the Representatives Council.

Student liaisons are selected by a committee of their peers and administrators.
