Biographical/Historical Note:     The duties of the Executive Director of the Board of Control were transferred to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents in 1965 (Ch. 63-204; Ch. 65-138, Laws of Florida).  The Chancellor acted as chief administrator of the Board of Regents, which served as Director of the Division of Universities of the Department of Education (Ch. 69-106, Laws).  The Chancellor was responsible for the administration of the State University System; advised the Board of all education problems; and supervised statewide studies and made recommendations for higher education.
    The State Legislature abolished the Board of Regents in 2001 (Chapter 2001-170, Laws of Florida, SB 1162, Florida Statutes Chapter 229.0072(4)(o)) and transferred its functions to the Florida Board of Education, a seven-member board of gubernatorial appointees established the previous year (Chapter 2000-321, HB 2263, Florida Statutes 229.004) to establish educational goals and objectives from kindergarten through college and, with the Commissioner of Education, to implement educational policies established by the legislature.  In 2002, Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment re-establishing a statewide university board, this time called the Board of Governors, to oversee higher education in Florida.
