Application window for UNM student regent open

The University of New Mexico is seeking a student to serve on the board that governs the state’s largest university.

Current student regent Ryan Berryman’s term will end in December, and the application window to replace him is open until October 7.

“Anyone who truly cares about this state and this university should consider the position,” Berryman said in a statement.

Per the state constitution, the Board of the Regents consists of seven members appointed by the governor with the consent of the state Senate. They oversee the governance of UNM. Unlike other regents who serve six-year terms, the student regent serves a two-year term.

It’s likely the new student regent would also have a role in selecting a new president for the University of New Mexico.

The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico and the Graduate and Professional Student Association, groups representing the undergrad and graduate student populations, compile recommendations which are then given to President Bob Frank.

Applications are available here for ASUNM and here for GPSA.
