About SCU

Role of the Board of Regents

Members of the Board of Regents are a group of volunteers who provide special advice and support to the University’s President and Board of Trustees. By their involvement with the University, Regents become ambassadors for the University in the community.

In their advising role, Regents make recommendations on selected policy and operational issues and do so in two ways: first, through their own discussions as a Board (including Board of Regents’ committees and task forces) and second, through the participation of individual regents on other University Boards and Advisory Committees.

In their support role, Regents help the University generate resources, especially through fund raising. They do this by making gifts of their own and by assisting the University in motivating others to give.

In their ambassadorial role, Regents represent the university in the community by “telling the story” of the University to those with whom they interact socially and at work.
