Mason’s Board of Visitors (BOV) includes two students who serve a one-year, non-voting term. The students are traditionally the student body president and the president of the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GAPSA). University Life is involved in the selection process.
The student representatives serve on BOV committees and participate in all board activities and deliberations. They also serve as liaisons for student concerns. In the past, one has served the interests of the Prince William and Fairfax Campuses and the other representative has promoted the interests of the Arlington Campus.
