The Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) is the governing body of Arizona's public university system, providing policy guidance to Arizona State Universitymarker, Northern Arizona Universitymarker, the University of Arizonamarker and their branch campuses.

Organization

Eight volunteer members are appointed by the Governor of Arizona to staggered eight-year terms; two students serve on the Board for two-year appointments, with the first year being a nonvoting apprentice year. The Governor and the Superintendent of Public Instruction serve as voting ex-officio members. The ABOR provides "policy guidance" and oversight to the three major degree-granting universities, as provided for by Title 15 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.

The Board of Regents is a constitutionally created body corporate. It exists on a plane equivalent to that of the Legislature. Arizona universities have no independent legal existence but are extensions of the Board.

History

In 1885, the Territorial Legislature authorized the establishment of the University of Arizona and provided for the management, direction, governance, and control by a Board of Regents. The state colleges, one in Tempe and one in Flagstaff, were governed by a three-member State Board of Education that included the Superintendent of Public Instruction and two members appointed by the Governor.

In March 1945, the Governor signed a law uniting the governing boards of the university and state colleges of Arizona. The authority of the Board of Regents expanded to include the Arizona State Teachers College at Tempe (since 1958 Arizona State University), and Arizona State Teachers College at Flagstaff (since 1966 Northern Arizona University).
