**Delgado is part of a group of students appointed by the Texas Governor to serve on their respective university system governing boards. These students have the same powers and duties as regents, but do not vote or are considered part of a quorum. The first such appointees served from 2006 to 2007. Prior to this, student regents were elected by their peers.
