Board of Regents Policy Section 2.1 stipulates that the president of each institution is to be formally selected by the Board of Regents in consultation with, and upon the recommendations of the Chancellor of the Board of Regents and any relevant Search Committees [1]. Board of Regents Policy Section 2.2 describes the "Procedure for Selection of a President for University System Institutions," [2] and Board of Regents Policy Section 2.2.3 specifically outlines this process for State Universities like the University of Georgia [2]. Board of Regents Policy Section 2.3 discusses "Performance Assessment of Presidents" [3].
