Delegations of Authority

The University of California is governed by a Board of Regents, which under Article IX, Section 9 of the California Constitution has "full powers of organization and governance" subject only to very specific areas of legislative control. In the Standing Orders of The Regents, certain authorities are conferred upon the President by the Board. The President may choose to transfer certain responsibilities to other senior officers, including Chancellors of the campuses, by formally delegating authority in written form. In turn, the Chancellor, when applicable, may choose to further delegate these authorities locally.
