Board of Regents is the Governing Body for The University of Texas System   1 comment

The Board of Regents, the governing body for The University of Texas System, is composed of nine members who are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Terms for Regents are scheduled for six years each and staggered so that three members’ terms will usually expire on February 1 of odd-numbered years. In addition, the Governor appoints a Student Regent for a one-year term.

Throughout the more than 100-year history of the U. T. System, the Board has been composed of dedicated and distinguished Texans who have been strong advocates of excellence in academic programs, scientific inquiry, and responsible public service.

The current Regents are:

Officers:

Francie A. Frederick, General Counsel to the Board of Regents

Members with term set to expire February 1, 2013

Members with term set to expire February 1, 2015

Members with term set to expire February 1, 2017

Student Regent with term to expire May 31, 2012

Each Regent’s term expires when a successor has been appointed, qualified, and taken the oath of office. The Student Regent serves a one-year term.

The 10th Chancellor of the UT System is Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D.  He is the chief executive officer of the UT System. The Chancellor reports to and is responsible to the Board of Regents. The Chancellor has direct line responsibility for all aspects of the UT System’s operations.

The Chancellor is assisted by the UT System Executive Officers.
