Student Trustees

In addition to serving the wider community, you have opportunities to serve our UNE community as well. The University of New England offers positions for two students each year to serve as full voting members of the University's Board of Trustees. Student board members attend all regular trustee meetings. As such, they provide a connection between all of our student populations and the board and have real input on this overarching governing body which guides the future of UNE. Student trustees not only provide a student perspective to the board, they also build connections between and within UNE's two campuses through their work with all student government organizations. Student Trustees are selected by a committee of their peers and administrators.
