Who Runs This Asylum?
I thank a friend for pointing out:
"Post from the Minnesota Daily on 2-17-07: In an e-mail response to the Regents Professors the chair of the Board of Regents, Dr. Patricia Simmons, said that the reconstruction [termination] of the Graduate School is not something on which the board can make decisions."
From the bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota:
The government of the University of Minnesota shall be vested in a Board
of twelve Regents . . . .
Article VII Section A
The Board of Regents may authorize appropriate executive officers to acton behalf of the University, consistent with Board of Regents policy . . .
Article VII Section B
All matters relating to the education and administrative affairs of the University, consistent with actions or policies of the Regents . . ., are, for the purpose of effectuating the government of the University under and by the Regents, committed to the President, the University Senate, and the several faculities, as provided in the Senate Constitution and as amended from time to time.
