Board of Regents

Presenting at Meetings of the Board of Regents

  • Introduce yourself and state your name and title.
  • Begin by stating if the item is intended to be for Board action or for information.
  • Agendas typically are very full. We suggest you practice your presentation ahead of time to make sure the timing is accurate. It will help the meeting stay on schedule.
  • Please do not present in person all of the information you submitted in advance. Assume the Regents have reviewed the materials.
  • Present a few high level points and your objective in bringing this information to the Board’s attention.
  • Leave 50% of your allocated time for questions from the Regents and discussion about the item.
  • When possible and relevant, include student presenters. The Regents want to hear from as many voices as possible on many topics and student participation is extremely valuable.
  • Business attire is recommended.

The University is fortunate to have an engaged and dedicated Board of Regents – and they have very clear expectations of us. Please feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns. We want your presentations to be successful!
