BOARD OF REGENTS

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia is composed of 16 members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate for seven-year terms. One member is appointed from each of the 11 congressional districts, and five are appointed from the state at large. The Board of Regents exercises broad jurisdiction over all institutions of the University System of Georgia and establishes policies and procedures under which they operate. The Board receives all state appropriations for the University System and allocates these appropriations to the institutions and institution-related agencies. While the Board engages in both policy-making and administrative functions, each unit of the System has a high degree of academic and administrative autonomy.

The System currently includes 35 institutions: four research universities, two regional universities, 11 state universities, two state colleges, 15 two-year colleges, and one independent research unit. These institutions are both individually distinctive and interrelated. They are geographically dispersed so that approximately 96 percent of the people in Georgia reside within 35 miles of at least one university or college.
