State lawmakers aimed to create a more diverse governing body for the University of Minnesota as they replaced one-third of the Board of Regents on Thursday.

Legislators elected four new regents who will spend the next six years overseeing the university system. They will make decisions on issues ranging from tuition increases to educational programming and will guide incoming U President Joan Gabel, who takes office July 1.
