Section 61.071 of the Education Code requires the THECB to appoint non-voting student representatives to THECB advisory committees for a term not be less than two years. The student representative shall enjoy the same rights as other members of advisory committees, except the right to vote or be counted towards a quorum for official committee business. The student representative serves without compensation; however, Texas Southmost College will pay all travel expenses incurred while a student serves.
