All official communications addressed to the Board of Regents or any member thereof shall be routed through the Office of the Chancellor and President.

Members of the Board should request all information necessary to carry out their duties and responsibilities from the Chancellor and President of the University.

The regular channel of communication from members of the Board to the faculty, staff, and administration is through the Chancellor and President or the appropriate Vice President and a copy of any communication sent by a member of the Board directly to any member of the faculty, staff, or administration should be furnished to the Chancellor and President or the appropriate Vice President involved.
