Only the Chancellor and those delegated by the Chancellor have the authority to execute contracts for the University. Anyone else executing a contract that purports to bind the University or its subunits is acting without authority and could be held personally liable for the breach of the contract or for the full value of the contract.
The Delegation of Signature Authority chart summarizes the signature delegations for all categories of University agreements, including sponsored programs, extension services, and design/construction.
