Student Regent 2021-2022
Due April 28th
  • The University of Washington Board of Regents has the authority and responsibility to govern and set policy across the University. The Regents set mission and strategic direction, oversee financial resources and other assets, select and evaluate the University President, and establish institutional policies and procedures. The Student Regent has the responsibility to bring the student perspective to this table, and through this position, they are uniquely capable of facilitating relationships across the three campuses and impacting the budgetary policy and financial decision-making of the University.
    In compensation for their time and service, the Student Regent receives a scholarship for tuition costs during their regency. Duties performed as Regent are reimbursed at the applicable per diem rate, in accordance with the Board policy. The time commitment required of the Student Regent is considerable and must be a full time student. They may, but need not necessarily, accept additional UW employment, in any case not to exceed 100 percent time, as their schedule and coursework permit, but must decline any tuition or fee waiver associated with that employment.
    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Kristina Pogosian at, Associate Vice President for Student Life Lincoln Johnson (

ASUW Senator Application
  • Senate meetings bring together a broad cross-section of the UW student community, which fosters a healthy dialogue surrounding issues affecting students. In doing so, we form the official opinion of the UW student body. We empower students through the democratic process, providing a space where their voices can be heard. Our platform allows for open expression of opinions, and any UW student may introduce legislation. Senators consider, amend, and vote on legislation, thus making the ultimate decision on its direction at UW. Student Senate meetings are open to all UW students. Become a Senator to vote on legislation. However you choose to participate in senate meetings, your voice has meaning and impact.
