Leadership at UAS is built on a collaborative model that includes top administrators from the three campuses as well as faculty, staff and students in leadership positions. Several regional planning and management groups assist in the development and implementation of policies and initiatives, and participate in the day-to-day operation of the University. These include the Chancellor's Cabinet, Provost Council, Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee, Student Success Coordinating Committee, governance groups and the regional Teaching Learning and Technology Roundtable (TLTR).

The work of the Executive Cabinet, composed of the four members of the executive leadership team, is augmented by monthly meetings of the Chancellor's Cabinet, which includes a broader range of members: Academic deans, campus directors, president of Faculty Senate, representatives of Staff Council and Student Government, directors of major divisions, and administrative managers of academic, student services and business support services.
