The University of California is a ten-campus public system of higher education that is governed by a 26-member Board of Regents, as established in Article IX, section 9 of the California State Constitution.

The governing documents of the Board include its Bylaws, Committee Charters, Standing Orders, and Regents Policies which are adopted by the Board and define the parameters for how the Board, in collaboration with President, governs the institution.

The Bylaws and Standing Orders establish the rules by which the Board organizes itself and conducts business.

Regents Policies are broad statements that have been approved by the Board of Regents on particular issues that support the purpose, principles and philosophy of the tripartite mission of the University: to provide excellence in teaching, research, and public service.
