Each individual will have 3 - 5 minutes to speak, depending on the number of speakers in attendance. The time period for the hearing can be extended beyond one hour, as determined by the Transparency Officer, to accommodate as many speakers as possible.

Each public hearing will be video recorded and posted on the Board of Regents web site, The comments received at each public hearing will be reviewed by the officers of the Board of Regents to determine if any issues or presenters should be placed on a future Board meeting agenda.
