USNH Board Representative

About

The University System Student Board Representative (USSBR) is the USNH Board Representative for undergraduate UNH students, and is their primary voice to the University System of New Hampshire (USNH).

Every USNH school (Keene State College, Granite State College, Plymouth State University, and the University of New Hampshire) is afforded two student delegates to represent the student bodies at each school to the USNH Board of Trustees, and is elected every year concurrently with each school's Student Body President. Every two years on a rotating basis, each schools' student delegates become full-fledged Student Trustees, with the same privileges and voting powers as any other Trustee. The undergraduate USNH Board Representative for UNH is a member of the Student Senate, and is assisted by two Advisors, who assist them in representing UNH students to the Board of Trustees.

The undergraduate USNH Board Representative for UNH is currently not a Student Trustee, and will become so for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years.  


The Student Trustee/University System Student Board Representative shall represent the Student Body to the University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees.
