Board of Regents
Morgan State University is governed by the Board of Regents, a 15-member board, as established under Title 14 of the Education Article, Annotated Code of Maryland. The Governor of Maryland appoints Board members for five-year terms, except for the student regent who is appointed for a one-year term. The Board appoints the University President, who serves at the pleasure of the Board. The Board also sets admission standards, reviews and approves university policies, budgets, and establishes the regulatory framework within which the individual units operate.
