Student Organization Manual



This manual exists to help student organizations understand their rights and responsibilities and to assist them in being effective organizations. It is not a comprehensive source of the institutional rules and regulations governing student organizations at The University of Texas at Dallas. Please refer to the Handbook of Operating Procedures for a more detailed explanation of university rules and policies. We strongly encourage you to consult with Student Organization Center staff for more information on policies related to being a student organization.
