UM: Student Regent

An editorial in the Michigan Daily argues that the University of Michigan regents should amend their bylaws to create a de facto, non-voting student regent position on the board: ”Newly elected regents Mark Bernstein and Shauna Ryder Diggs won on a platform of open mindedness and consensus building, so it seems an opportune time to implement this change. Nearly every governor-appointed regency has either a voting or non-voting student regent position. Though the fact that our regents are chosen by general election may hinder the speedy implementation of an official, voting student regent position, a de facto student regent is the logical first step.” [Source]
