Historical NoteReturn to Top
The Board of Regents is the central governing board for Washington State University. Members are appointed by the Governor of the State of Washington. The Enabling Act that established the institution implies certain administrative duties for the Regents. In early years of the college, Regents sometimes had a direct role in both management and operation. At other times, the Regents have served more as an oversight and policy board. The University President is the Secretary of the Board, and, for many matters, is the legal delegate of the Board.
Content DescriptionReturn to Top
The collection consists of ‘pinks,’ or outgoing correspondence originating with the secretary of the Board of Regents on behalf of the board, dating from 1965 to 1990. They are referred to as pinks because of the color of the paper. Also included is a small series of university president’s report agendas, from 1960 to 1985, from a report delivered to the Board near the start of each meeting. Usually, in the Regents minutes, the presidential report is covered in a single line, something akin to “the president delivered his report.” These files detail these reports in a brief agenda format.
