Welcome to The University of Texas at Dallas!

The Division of Student Affairs is here to provide you with resources and services that will contribute to your success both in and out of the classroom. Our goal is to offer a variety of experiences that complement, and many times enhance, what you’ll learn while you’re here.

We want to support you, guide you and assist you in identifying involvement opportunities that are important to you. Take advantage of all that is available to you, whether it’s joining a student organization, participating in volunteer activities, attending athletic events and concerts, or joining Student Government, there’s something here for everyone. For many, this will be a journey that will challenge you and define who you are. As you plan your journey, find that person, that place, or that thing that enables you to make a connection with UT Dallas. 

We understand there might be times you’ll feel overwhelmed. We encourage you to find balance between your academic and extracurricular experiences. Involvement leads to higher graduation rates and retention, but we know it can also cause a person to find themselves in over their head. Within Student Affairs, there are resources available to assist you in reclaiming your balance.

I invite you to browse our website and see what we have to offer. Your journey—our journey—begins today. I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Dr. Gene Fitch, Jr.
Vice President for Student Affairs
The University of Texas at Dallas
