Interested in applying to be a student trustee?
If you’re a full-time undergraduate or graduate Indiana University student at any IU campus—even a nonresident or international student—you’re eligible to apply for the student trustee position on the IU Board of Trustees.
You must maintain full-time student status during the position’s two-year tenure.
You must be able to confirm that you’ll have sufficient time to take on the responsibilities of serving on the board, with no negative impact on your academic career.
If you’re an undergraduate who anticipates receiving your degree during your term, you must be able to document serious intent to attend graduate school, such as:
- Copies of formal applications
- Proof of completion of required exams, such as the GRE
- Letter of intent
- Letter of acceptance into a program
How to apply
You’ll need to prepare several short personal statements, your current resume, and at least one letter of recommendation. Be sure to give yourself enough time to gather all your documents and information by the deadline.
When the application process begins, the application will be available online. You can also apply by mail. To request a paper version of the application, contact the board.
