Nominations for University System Student Board Student Representatives Now Being Accepted

Shaking hands

Granite State College and the University System of New Hampshire are looking for two outstanding students to represent the College on the statewide University System Student Board (USSB) for the 2018-2019 academic year. Offered annually, this unique opportunity links our students directly to University System of New Hampshire (USNH) trustees, ensuring that student voices are represented and considered during decision-making.

Each school of the four-school system sends two students to the USSB. They are chosen via an online election that takes place in May.

“The students who work on the USSB get a unique perspective into the Board of Trustees, some of its subcommittees, and the role they play in guiding the College,” said Tiffany Doherty, director of student affairs. “The opportunity to be the voice of the Granite State College student body offers the kind of experience that can take you far in your career.”

“Serving on the Board has been one of the highlights of my Granite State College experience,” said Ricky Fife, student trustee. “Every meeting was fascinating, because I had the chance to see the inner-workings of a statewide University system, learn about governance, and at the same time, meet some very important people.”

  • You must have attended GSC for more than one term
