UT System Office of the Board of Regents

Fall 2020

Position: Student Associate
Student: Government Senior

The University of Texas (UT) System is comprised of fourteen institutions of higher education throughout the state of Texas. The Office of the Board of Regents located within the UT System office building in downtown Austin consists of support staff for the Regents who are the governing body of the System. All members of the Board are appointed by the Governor of Texas. Similar to other governing boards, the Board of Regents handles pertinent matters that affect each institution both individually and as a whole. I started at the UT System in the Office of Governmental Relations back in 2018, an internship which I found through the College of Liberal Arts’ Texas Politics Project. After a brief hiatus working in the Texas Senate for the 2019 Legislative Session, I returned to the UT System in October 2019 and began working for the Office of the Board of Regents. During my internship, I have spent lots of time working on tracking the history of the Board and updating the rules by which the Board is governed. In my time here I have met many wonderful people and have had the privilege to experience a law office setting which has piqued my interest as a Government major at UT. One of the special parts of this internship in particular is that all members of the office are women who are some of the best in their fields. It has been an honor to be able to work alongside people I look up to and hope to stay in contact with post-graduation.
