The Governance and Decision Making Processes of the Arizona Board of Regents and Universities.
Schneider, Jacqueline; Johnson, Edward
One of the working papers in the final report of the Arizona Board of Regents' (ABOR) Task Force on Excellence, Efficiency and Competitiveness, this document looks at ABOR and at the governance and decision making processes of Arizona's three public universities. ABOR is a body corporate charged with the governance of the three universities, which have no independent existence but rather are extensions of the Board. Subjects considered are as follows: the constitutional authority and responsibility of the Board; the statutory authority and responsibility of the Board; delegation of authority by the Board; the role of Board committees and councils; executive staff councils; and internal decision making processes at the university level. Specific information (e.g., presidents, vice presidents, vice provost, legal council to the president, associate to the president, assistant to the president, deans, and the faculty senate) is provided for the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona, the Arizona Students Association, and the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (the official student governance body). Eleven selected officers oversee the Arizona Students Association, an active student lobbying group representing each of the three state universities before ABOR and the state legislature. (SM)
