101 Board of Regents
As one of the state-supported colleges and universities comprising the University System of Georgia, Georgia State University is governed by the Board of Regents.
The constitutional board is made up of 15 members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate for staggered terms of seven years each. One member is chosen from each of the state's ten congressional districts with five members representing the state at large. Officers of the Board are the Chairman and the Vice Chairman, selected from the Board itself, plus the Chancellor, who is the Board's executive officer, the Vice Chancellor, the Executive Secretary, the Treasurer, and any additional officers whom the Chancellor may wish to employ. Each officer is elected to a one-year term by the Board itself.
The Constitution of the State of Georgia charges the Board of Regents with responsibility for "government, control, and management of the University System of Georgia." It has final authority over all physical properties of the University System's colleges and universities, over the offering of courses of study and degree programs, and over employment of faculty and other System personnel. State appropriations for the University System are requested by and are made to the Board of Regents. Allocations of the appropriations are made by the Board.
