Graduate students can apply to run for the graduate presidential ticket or to be appointed to the Executive Cabinet.

Seats in UHR are broken down by academic major, class/year, and special constituencies, including transfer and international students. Learn more about UHR here. Each undergraduate presidential ticket consists of a candidate for president and executive vice president. The responsibilities for each position can be found here.
