Student Regents rotate in on the UC Board of Regents via a two-stage process. The first stage is non-voting, and the second stage is voting. There is only one student regent (plus one "student regent-designate" ). The UCSA Board of Directors, the Council of Student Body Presidents, and the Regents’ Special Committee to Select a Student Regent are all involved in the annual selection of the Student Regent. They participate in a process where three finalists are selected. The Regents may reject the list of finalists. When the finalist list is finalized, the Regents vote to select the student regent.
The current Student Regent is:
- Sadia Saifudden, UC Berkeley undergraduate student
The current Student Regent-Designate is:
- Abraham "Avi" Oved (designate), UC Los Angeles undergraduate student
Previous student regents from UC Davis:
Michael S. Salerno, 1977-1978 (law) Hector C. Lozano, 1979-1980 (senior sociology) Janice C. Eberly, 1985-1986 (junior agricultural economics) Deborah Thorpe, 1988-1989 (junior chemistry) Darby Morrisroe, 1993-1994 (senior political science) Adam Rosenthal, 2005-2006 (professional law)
