The Regents Policy Manual as it was constituted in 2018. This manual provides a fundamental grounding to the total governance of the university insofar as it guides the actions and policies of the Board of Regents, and in this, charges various other bodies within the university with governance responsibilities, e.g. section 5.1 which defines the faculty's role in the university's academic mission. Other notable sections includes the institutional polices on "Diversity and Campus Climate" (section 2.4), and "Hiring, Promotion, and Transfer" (6.2).
