Historical:

The Board of Regents is the central governing board for Washington State University. Members are appointed by the Governor of the State of Washington. The Enabling Act that established the institution implies certain administrative duties for the Regents. In early years of the college, Regents sometimes had a direct role in both management and operation. At other times, the Regents have served more as an oversight and policy board. The University President is the Secretary of the Board, and, for many matters, is the legal delegate of the Board.

Arrangement note

The records at the Libraries consist of two chronologically-ordered series. One is the minute books. A shorter second series consist of the supporting documents, chiefly from 1975-79. This second series derives from several sources, much of it apparently from the offices of the Associated Students of Washington State University. This series was added to the Regents records without regard to provenance.
