Board of Regents

The Board of Regents is composed of 16 members: five from the state-at-large and one from each of the eleven congressional districts. Members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate to serve seven-year terms of office. The Board meets monthly at the Regents' office in Atlanta and occasionally at System institutions or special retreats. All officers of the Board are elected for one-year terms beginning on July 1, except for the Chancellor who serves at the pleasure of the Board. The Chair of the Board has the authority to appoint committee chairs and members. Each committee is charged with studying the problems in the field assigned to it and making recommendations to the Board concerning policies and activities. Special committees may also be authorized by the Board as needed.
