The Proceedings of the Board of Regents
are the permanent historical record of actions taken by the
University of Michigan Board of Regents from 1837 to the
Proceedings volumes are organized on a fiscal year basis,
so that volumes begin with the July meeting of one year and
end with the June meeting of the next year. Beginning in
July 1987, the Proceedings have been published in one-year
volumes (e.g., July 1987-June 1988). Prior to that, they
were normally published in three-year volumes.
In addition to the text search capabilities of the Regents
Proceedings found on this website, it is also possible to
search the index to the Proceedings. Through that method,
one can search for phrases or items which will elicit further
information, including the volume and page number of the
Proceedings where an entry can be found on a given topic.
One would then return to this site and retrieve the reference
from the appropriate volume. This might be a more convenient
method of obtaining information in some situations. The Regents
Proceedings Index can be found at
to search multiple collections.
