June 3, 2003 :: Student Delegates Elect New Members to Fill Student Advisory Board Roles
Six students representing the state system of higher education, as well as independent institutions, will serve one-year terms beginning May 30 as members of the Student Advisory Board to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
Two students on the advisory board represent the state's comprehensive universities – Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma – and two represent the regional universities. In addition, two students on the board represent the state's two-year colleges and two technical branches, and one student represents the accredited independent colleges and universities and proprietary institutions in Oklahoma.
The Student Advisory Board for 2003-2004 includes third-year member Asher Killian of Midwest City, University of Oklahoma; Cora Suter of Hartshorne, Oklahoma State University; Brandy Williams of Midwest City, Langston University; Melissa Fansler of Oklahoma City, OSU-Oklahoma City; Chad Lee of Midwest City, Rose State College; and Jamee Telford of Chandler, St. Gregory’s University. An additional member will be appointed at a later date.
The advisory board members, who were recently elected by delegates of the Oklahoma Student Government Association, will represent the views and interests of all Oklahoma college and university students throughout the 2003-2004 academic year. Combining student opinions and practical research, they provide feedback to the State Regents on matters that affect students on all of Oklahoma’s college campuses and develop proposals and recommendations to the State Regents.
“Every member of the Student Advisory Board plays a key role in helping the State Regents understand many of the issues that are important to Oklahoma’s college students,” Chancellor Paul G. Risser said. “There will be several challenges for Oklahoma higher education during the coming year, and we look forward to working with the board to help make our students’ college experience the most rewarding it can be.”
