The University, like all corporations, must act through authorized individuals. The law authorizes the Regents to act for the University. The Regents have delegated authority to manage and administer the University to President Bruininks. He has divided this authority into some 150 subjects and delegated authority for each subject to individuals who report to him. In most cases, they have redelegated that authority. Currently, there are approximately 13,000 delegations of authority.
