Applications Now Open For Student Trustee Selection Committee

Penn State Student Trustee Mike Hoeschele’s two-year term is coming to a close. The application and interview process to find his successor is now in motion, starting with applications for the 12-student selection committee that will evaluate candidates for trustee.

Hoeschele will chair the selection committee, working alongside Commonwealth Council of Student Governments President Greg Carvajal, Graduate Professional Student Association President Brianne Pragg, and UPUA President and Vice President Cody Heaton and Laura McKinney as the core members of the student selection team.

Any full-time undergraduate or graduate student can apply to serve the two-year term as student trustee. Basically the only requirement is that you have two years left as a Penn State student.

The committee will review applications and recommend a single candidate to the chair of the Board of Trustees. That student will then be interviewed by three trustees and evaluated by the Board’s Governance and Long Range Planning Committee. University bureaucracy at its finest, baby!

The candidate who receives the initial recommendation from the selection committee will likely become the next student trustee, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Applications for the six at-large committee seats are due by 11:59 p.m. Friday, February 8.
