The people of Alabama have vested full management and control over the "state university" in a "board of trustees" (Ala. Const. Art. 14, Sec. 264); the Legislature of the State of Alabama has provided that “the trustees heretofore appointed from the different congressional districts of the state under the provisions of Sec. 264 of the Constitution,” and their successors in office, as a body corporate and has identified and named the corporation "The Board of Trustees of The University of Alabama" (Code of Alabama, 1940, Title 52, Sec. 486). In order to more effectively manage and control the "state university," in order to provide for a definitive, orderly form of governance, and in order to secure and continue a responsive, progressive, and superior institution of higher education, the board of trustees hereby does promulgate and adopt these Bylaws.
