JUDGMENT OF COMPLIANCE
NARRATIVE/JUSTIFICATION FOR JUDGMENT OF COMPLIANCEThe Texas Education Code, Chapter 85, Subchapter B. Administrative Provisions, Section 85.11: Board of Regents, calls for the government of the university system to be vested in a board of nine regents appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate.
The members hold office for staggered terms of six years, with the terms of three expiring February 1 of odd-numbered years. There is no provision in state law for the dismissal of a regent since they serve at the pleasure of the governor of the state.
