UCLA junior economics major Abraham Oved has been nominated as the 2015-16 University of California student regent by a special Board of Regents committee.

As student regent, Oved said he hopes to focus on preserving access to UC, advocating for more state support for higher education, addressing sexual violence on campuses and working on issues surrounding campus climate, according to a news release.

“I can’t claim to understand everyone’s experiences, but I will do everything I can to reach out and listen,” Oved said. “I hope to be a liaison for students, faculty and administrators and serve as their advocate.”

Oved has taken part in the Undergraduate Students Association Council and the UCLA Jewish Student Union. He also has served as an intern both in former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s office and with Hillel at UCLA.

The regents will vote on the committee’s recommendation in July. If approved, Oved would serve as regent-designate for a year, then begin a yearlong term in July 2015.

He would follow 2014-15 student regent Sadia Saifuddin, a UC Berkeley student majoring in social welfare, and be the 41st student regent since the position was created in 1975.
