§70-3228. Regents - Continuing education requirement.
A. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, each person appointed on or after January 1, 1991, as a member of the board of regents for an institution or group of institutions within The Oklahoma State System of Higher Education shall be required to attend a minimum of fifteen (15) clock hours of continuing education during the first two (2) years of the term of office of the member. At least two (2) of the fifteen (15) hours must be in ethics. The continuing education courses which shall satisfy the continuing education requirement shall be held within this state and shall be selected by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The Attorney General shall advise the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education on the selection of continuing education courses.
B. It is the intent of the Oklahoma Legislature that the failure by a member of the board of regents to satisfy the continuing education requirement of this section shall disqualify such member from being reappointed to the membership of the board of regents to which such person is a member or from being appointed to the membership of any other board of regents of any institution or group of institutions within The Oklahoma State System of Higher Education.
C. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education shall provide opportunities for regents to complete said continuing education at various locations within the state. At least half of said opportunities shall be scheduled outside of the major population centers.
