An incumbent is an individual who has a relationship to a position. When an student is hired (assigned) to work in a specific position, he or she becomes the incumbent and inherits the attributes of the position. When the student leaves a student position, the position stays, retains its attributes, and is vacant. Another incumbent can then fill the position.
