1.3 State Agency Policy Making

As a state agency, the Board of Regents has statutory authority under the Iowa Administrative Procedure Act (IC 17A) to make policy through adoption of administrative rules in furtherance of its statutory mandate to govern the state's universities. These administrative rules are published for public comment in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin, and, once adopted, they become part of the Iowa Administrative Code. The other source for Regent policies is the Board of Regents Policy Manual.
