This bill adds two student representatives to the board of governors of Rutgers University. Membership of the board currently consists of the president of the university, serving as an ex officio non-voting member, and 11 voting members, six of whom are appointed by the Governor, and five of whom are members of the board of trustees of the university. Under the bill, two full-time, regularly matriculated student representatives in good academic standing, who are 18 years of age or older and citizens of the United States, are to be elected by the students of the university to serve on the board of governors for terms of two years. The bill requires the board of governors to schedule a public hearing on the question of the method of election of student representatives to the board within 90 days of the bill's effective date. At its next regularly scheduled meeting following the public hearing, the board of governors will determine whether the students are to be elected by the student body at large or by the members of the student government association. The method of the selection and the designation of eligible academic status of the student representatives will be determined by the board of governors. Under the bill, for the first election held for student representatives, one student will be elected for a one-year term as a full voting member, and one student will be elected for two years, but will serve as an alternate member during the first year and as a voting member during the second year. At each subsequent election, one student is to be elected for two years, but will serve during the first year as an alternate member, and as a voting member during the second year.
