The LSA is delighted to share the news that LSA member and former Sag Fellow at the LSA's 2017 Linguistic Institute Jamaal Muwwakkil (University of California, Santa Barbara) has been nominated by a University of California Board of Regents’ special committee to be the 2020-21 student regent. If approved by the full Board of Regents at their July meeting, Muwwakkil will become the 46th student regent, a position established in 1975. He will serve as the student regent-designate for the coming year, able to participate in all deliberations, and will have voting privileges when his one-year term as a regent begins in July 2020.
