Board of Regents
The University of Alaska Board of Regents is an 11-member board, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Alaska Legislature. Members serve an 8-year term, with the exception of the student regent who is nominated from his/her campus and serves a 2-year term. The Board was established through the Alaska Constitution and is responsible for University of Alaska policy and management through the University President.
Each of the 3 universities is its own administration led by a chancellor. The chancellors are members of the president's staff. Organizational charts are available for UA, UAA, UAF and UAS.
A strong advocate for the university, the president carries out the Board of Regents' policies and manages the university system.
The System Governance Office provides opportunity for faculty, staff and students to interact with the university regents and administration to discuss matters of mutual interest.
