Board of Regents

Board of Regents

The USU Board of Regents is a Federal Advisory Committee and is comprised of 15 members who are appointed by the Secretary of Defense; six individuals are appointed based upon their ex officio position in the federal government. The remaining nine members are appointed by the Secretary of Defense under the authority of 10 USC § 2113a and serve as special government employees. All 15 members are appointed to provide advice on behalf of the government on the basis of their best judgment without representing any particular point of view and in a manner that is free from conflict of interest. These University advisors are dedicated and distinguished members of the health care community and uniformed services, advocating excellence in education, research and responsible public service.

 “Service on the USU Board of Regents and as chair is a major way to remain connected and to learn about military medicine, to understand and help others to understand, and a way to be part of military medicine— my love and life. … There have been many changes but every class is notable for working together, for a strong sense of mission and for its high caliber of people.”
