Board of Regents

The Board of Regents for Higher Education governs seventeen Connecticut State Colleges & Universities - four state universities; 12 community colleges; and Charter Oak State College, Connecticut's only public, online, degree-granting institution.


Among many responsibilities, the board sets statewide tuition and student fee policies; establishes financial aid policies; reviews, licenses, and accredits academic programs; and, in collaboration with institutional stakeholders, conducts searches for and selects campus presidents. In addition to governance responsibilities, the board also holds broad responsibilities for development and coordination of statewide higher education policy.

Board Chair

The chair of the Board of Regents is appointed by the Governor and the Board of Regents elects a vice-chair and other officers from among its membership.
