Utah System of Higher Education

The Utah State Board of Regents was formed in 1969 as a governing body for the Utah System of Higher Education. It is made up of Utah State University Eastern, Dixie State University, Salt Lake Community College, Snow College, Southern Utah University, the University of Utah, Utah College of Applied Technology, Utah State University, Utah Valley University, and Weber State University.

The Board consists of eighteen residents of the State: sixteen of these regents, including one student regent, are appointed by the Governor of Utah. The remaining two regents are appointed by the chair of Utah State Board of Regents and serve as nonvoting members. The Board oversees the establishment of policies and procedures, executive appointments, master planning, budget and finance, proposals for legislation, develops governmental relationships, and performs administrative unit and program approval for higher education for the State of Utah.

The first commissioner and executive officer of the Utah System of Higher Education was G. Homer Durham, the former president of Arizona State University.
