Student Trustee Selection

Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

Council of Trustee Responsibilities:   The Edinboro University Council of Trustees (COT) are appointed by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to serve as the governing body of the institution.  The COT reviews recommendations from the University President regarding the approval of academic programs, admission and conduct standards, budget and fees, and official University contracts.  Also, the COT has the important task of formally evaluating the performance of the University President.

The Student Trustee:  As a member of the COT, the student trustee maintains the same voting rights and responsibilities afforded to all council members.  In addition, the student trustee may be called upon to represent the University at official functions (i.e. commencement, convocation, etc.). 

Student Trustees Requirements:   Eligible candidates shall be at least a first semester sophomore (at least 30 earned credits) but not more than a second semester junior (no more than 95 earned credits).   Student trustee candidates will be full time, undergraduate students who are in good academic and disciplinary standing with the University.   The selected student trustee must maintain good standing as a full-time, undergraduate student throughout his/her tenure on the Council of Trustees.
