AUSTIN—Texas State University’s Gabriel Webb was appointed as The Texas State University System (TSUS) student regent for the 2022-23 term by Governor Greg Abbott on June 8, 2022.
Webb is one of eight student regents in Texas that were nominated and selected to serve on the governing boards of Texas’ public university systems and independent universities until their term expires on May 31, 2023.
While each student regent has the same rights and privileges as the appointed board members, they are not allowed to vote or be counted in a quorum for official board business.
Webb is currently working towards a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a minor in Biology and Psychology. He is a student athlete playing football and plans to attend medical school, according to the official news release from the Office of the Texas Governor.
The previous TSUS student regent was Camile Settegast, a recently graduating from Texas State with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Marketing.
Founded in 1911, TSUS is governed by the Board of Regents, made of nine members that are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Senate. Their terms are staggered, meaning three members are appointed every two years.
The Board of Regents holds quarterly meetings every year and special called meetings to discuss issues within the system, such as adding degree programs, the appointment of Dr. Kelly Damphousse as President of Texas State University, policy changes and more.
