History President of the University of Michigan_section_0

The office was created by the Michigan Constitution of 1850, which also specified that the president was to be appointed by the Regents of the University of Michigan and preside at their meetings, but without a vote. President of the University of Michigan_sentence_5

The precise wording has evolved through subsequent state constitutions, and as of November 2018 the office is defined by Article VIII, section 5 of the Constitution of 1963: President of the University of Michigan_sentence_6

Between the establishment of the University of Michigan in 1837 and 1850, the Board of Regents ran the university directly; by law, they were supposed to appoint a chancellor to administer the university, but they never did, and a rotating roster of professors carried out the day-to-day administrative duties instead.

While the modern office was created in 1850, the University of Michigan itself now traces its date of founding to 1817, when its precursor, the University of Michigania, was founded. President of the University of Michigan_sentence_8

The only president of that institution, Rev. President of the University of Michigan_sentence_9 John Monteith, appears in the list of presidents but is not officially considered to have been a president of the University of Michigan. President of the University of Michigan_sentence_10
