The State Board of Regents is the governing body for Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, the University of Northern Iowa, the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School, the Iowa School for the Deaf and the State Sanitarium at Oakdale. The nine members of the Board are appointed to six-year terms by the Governor with the approval of the Senate. Not more than five members may be of the same political party. The Board ordinarily meets once a month at the Board Office in Des Moines or at one of three institutions it governs. It is responsible for major policies, coordinates the activities of the various institutions under its jurisdiction, approves budgets, selects the presidents of the institutions after consultation with representatives of the school involved, approves staff appointments and establishes guidelines for staff salaries. The immediate regulation and direction of academic, research and extension activities of the University are delegated by the Board of Regents to the President and the faculty of the University. The board appoints an Executive Secretary with the overall responsibility for the administration of the central office of the Board. The Board reports to the Governor concerning budgets and on important educational matters. Called the Board of Trustees from 1859-1909, the Iowa State Board of Education from 1909-1955, the present name of the Iowa State Board of Regents was adopted in 1955.
