AN ACT CONCERNING STUDENT MEMBERSHIP ON THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT

SUMMARY: By law, UConn's 21-member Board of Trustees (BOT) must have two student members, one undergraduate and one graduate, elected by their respective student bodies. This act makes UConn students ineligible to fill either of the student representative seats on the university's BOT unless they are full-time when elected and remain enrolled full-time throughout their two-year terms. The change applies to students elected after July 1, 2013.

The remaining BOT membership consists of 12 gubernatorial appointees, two elected alumni representatives, and five ex-officio members (commissioners of agriculture, education, and economic and community development; UConn Health Center chairperson; and governor).

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
