  • RPD 6-4, “Selection Process for System President, Chancellors, Vice Chancellors, and UW System Senior Leadership Positions,” defines the roles and responsibilities of the Board of Regents and the System President and the committees they appoint, when filling leadership positions in UW System Administration and at UW institutions.
