Mission

The University of Dallas Student Government functions as the representative assembly of the UD student community. The purpose of UD Student Government is threefold:

  1. Promote the general welfare of the University and the Student Body through its support of the University's mission, ideals, and values.
  2. Communicate student concerns and interests to appropriate University Committees and to the University Administration.
  3. Sponsor programs and services to enhance campus life.

Guided by the mission of the University and in accordance with the teachings and principles of the Catholic Church, Student Government strives to foster a healthy and enriched campus environment and to build up a strong student community. The representatives in Student Government are dedicated to enhancing the quality of student life by promoting both the academic and social traditions of the University. Student Government is committed to serving the interests of the UD student, and it is important to stress that those of us in Student Government are always willing to hear your voice so we can bring your ideas and opinions to the rest of the University community. All of the members of Student Government look forward to helping students more involved in campus life, and so we encourage you to contact us with any questions that you might have.


History

The Senate, consisting of representatives from each undergraduate class, residence halls, the student apartments, commuters, and the Holy Trinity Seminary. The Senate and Executive Council meet weekly to discuss important student issues and concerns and provide innovative and effective responses. All students are always welcome to attend.

The second branch, SPUD (Student Programming at UD) is overseen by the Director of Student Programming and the Associate Director of Student Programming. SPUD consists of seven committees: Traditions, Academics, Musical Entertainment, Socials, Sound, Publicity, and TGIT. The SPUD Board Coordinators are assisted by senators and other volunteers drawn from the student body. Together, members of SPUD plan and run the majority of events on campus, from the weekly TGITs to the annual Mallapalooza.

The third branch, the Executive Council, oversees the actions of the prior two. The Executive Council includes the President, Vice President, Director of Student Programming, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Executive Council ensures that Student Government as a whole runs smoothly and effectively, and that student concerns are appropriately communicated to the administration. The President particularly meets with administrators, the Vice President presides over the Senate, and the Director of Student Programming leads the SPUD team. The Treasurer ensures responsible handling of SG funds, and the Secretary is responsible for keeping records, publicizing the accomplishments of the Senate, and coordinating the Freshman Mentoring Program.
