Be a Student Advocate to the Regents

Student Advocates to the Regents (StARs) are UC students who attend Board of Regents meetings to build relationships with Regents and speak on behalf of student priorities. They are provided direct access to the Regents without the constraints of the line separating approved guests from the public audience.

In addition to giving public comment during Regents meeting open sessions, StARs meet Regents and UCOP staff during informal parts of the agenda, which includes breaks and meals. UCSA selects up to 4 students per day of every Regents Meeting. All travel, lodging, and a daily meal stipend is provided for all StARs.

Please stay tuned for the application to be a StAR at the November Regents Meeting!
