A&M System Student Regent
In 2005, the 79th Texas Legislature authorized the Governor to appoint a nonvoting student regent for a university system board of regents.

This statute defines the powers and duties of a student regent, establishes the appointment and application procedure, and provides qualifications to be appointed and to remain a student regent throughout the term.
THECB Non-Voting Student Representative
Section 61.0225 of the Texas Education Code provides for the annual appointment of one non-voting student representative to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board by the governor of the State of Texas.

Trends and details for each strategy are outlined below in accordance with SACSCOC policies and System considerations. This is not an endorsement of either strategy, but rather a presentation of the components of two specific strategies geared to improve degree completion.
