The Nicolet Area Technical College District Board of Trustees (Board) recognizes the important contributions Nicolet College students make to developing policy and representing the needs and interests of students from the entire community. Student representation provides a means of input into the disposition of student activity and incidental fees under Section 38.14 (9). Student representation on the Board, President’s Collaborative Council (PCC), and Student Leadership Council (SLC) brings student perspective to College decision making.

Student Representation on the Board

A student shall be selected to represent Nicolet students to serve a one-year term. The student representative must be continuously enrolled while serving in the position. The student is a non- voting appointed member of the Board. The student representative shall be seated at the Board table during all open Board meetings and shall serve as a liaison on behalf of the student body on educational matters, student life, and activities.

The College President contacts the Nicolet College SLC and sends an all-student e-mail notifying and encouraging students to apply or to nominate another student. A student is appointed by the President to serve a one-year term on the Board.

The student representative may be appointed to committees of the Board (i.e., presidential search), provided no committee member objects in writing to the Board Chair. The student representative may not enter into any closed session of the Board or participate in discussion or voting on any resolutions or motions before the Board.

The student representative has the rights of any citizen in the District. However, they must clearly communicate to the Board when they are expressing views or opinions as a citizen.

Student Representation on the President’s Collaborative Council:

A student is appointed by the President to serve a one-year term on the PCC.
