GSBS student Diana Schulz is the UNT System's second student regent
Authorized by the Texas Legislature in 2005, the student regent holds a one-year term beginning in February and is appointed by Gov. Rick Perry to represent the interests of students as well as the interests of the State of Texas and the university system.
While technically not a member of the nine-member UNT System Board of Regents, Schulz may serve on task forces, committees and special commissions, and will attend meetings of the board of regents and other activities required by the Office of the Governor and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
Schulz has served as a volunteer emergency medical technician and has done mission work through her church. She earned a bachelor's degree in biomedical science from Texas A&M University in 2004.
The selection of the student regent rotates among the three institutions in the UNT System (UNT-Denton, UNT-Dallas and UNTHSC) each year.Schulz replaces Brittany Adams, a UNT-Denton political science major from Mesquite, who became the UNT System's first student regent in February 2006.
