University of North Georgia is compliant with this comprehensive standard.


The legal authority and operating control of University of North Georgia (UNG) are clearly defined for the mission within the institution's governance structure. Final authority for governance, control, and management of each institution rests with the Board of Regents (BOR) of the University System of Georgia (USG). This authority is designated to the BOR in both the Constitution of the State of Georgia (Article VIII, Section IV, Paragraph 1 (b), Constitution of the State of Georgia[1]) and the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) [20-3-31[2] and 20-3-32[3], Official Code of Georgia Annotated]. The BOR establishes the strategic direction and guiding principles for each institution, and UNG defines its mission subject to approval by the BOR [4]in accordance with that direction and those principles.
