The University System of Georgia

All state-supported institutions of higher learning in Georgia were combined into the greater University System of Georgia by legislative enactment at the regular session of the General Assembly in 1931. Under the articles of the Act, all existent boards of trustees were abolished and control of the system was vested in a Board of Regents with all the powers and rights of the former governing boards of the several institutions. Control of the system by the Board of Regents became effective Jan. 1, 1932.
