1.3 State Agency Policy Making
Article III of the Constitution of the State of Iowa vests the legislative authority of the State in the General Assembly (G.A.). It delegates broad authority to the G.A. to "provide for the educational interest of the state in any . . . manner that to them shall seem best and proper" (Article IX, Section 15), and it establishes a state university -- The University of Iowa (Article IX, Section 11). In executing its delegated authority, the G.A. established a Board of Trustees (now the Board of Regents, State of Iowa) to govern the State University. It also adopted Iowa Code Chapter 262, which charges the Regents with governing the State University of Iowa, the Iowa State University, the University of Northern Iowa, the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School, the State School for the Deaf, the Oakdale campus, and the Center for Disabilities and Development (formerly the University Hospital School).
The Board of Regents consists of nine members, one of whom must be a full-time student enrolled at one of the three state universities at the time of appointment, who are appointed by the Governor and subject to confirmation by the Senate (IC 262.1; RPM 1.01). The officers of the Board include the president and the executive director (RPM 1.04). The staff of the board, headed by the executive director, are responsible for providing staff assistance to the Board, reviewing and analyzing institutional proposals, and preparing recommendations to the Board (RPM 3.03).
The members of the Board are:
a. Bruce L. Rastetter, President (2011-17)
Addresses, telephone numbers, and biographical information are available from the Board of Regents web site.
