On April 9th students’ elections will be held campus wide for a new student trustee.  The student trustee acts as a liaison between the students of Lewis & Clark and the College Board of Trustees and is given an advisory vote on measures that are taken up by the College Board. The position gives students a unique opportunity to be a part of the academic and administrative process at Lewis & Clark.

“Students that are interested in running for student trustee should be aware of the amount of time that needs to be committed” said George Terry, student government adviser.  Candidates need to be available to meet with the regular student government body each week on Wednesday at 1:00 PM, and one Thursday a month in the evening for the Board of Trustees Meeting. Also being student trustee has other commitments including participation in student events including conferences off campus.

To qualify for the election, candidates must be enrolled at Lewis & Clark Community College for a minimum of 1 credit hour, Have a cumulative GPA of 2.50, and be available to attend all required meetings for the office, and have a petition with 50 student signatures signed and delivered to the Student Life Office at Riverbend Area Room 111 no later than March 2nd, 2011 at 12:00 Noon. Students interested in running should make an appointment with George Terry to discuss the position and pick up the forms necessary at the Student Life Office.
