"The Board of Trustees of the University of Dallas hereby establishes the student
body of the Constantin College and its elective governing body, Student Government,
as the structure by which undergraduate students may collectively participate in shaping
the quality of student life within the University."
--Student Government Charter
The University of Dallas Student Government functions as the representative assembly of the UD student community. The purpose of UD Student Government is threefold:
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 Executive Council and Senators are dedicated to serving the interests of the UD student body and are always open to listening to ideas, opinions, and concerns of our community.
The Senate, consisting of representatives from each undergraduate class, commuters, international students, student athletes, and the Holy Trinity Seminary. The Senate and Executive Council meet weekly to discuss important student issues and concerns in order to provide innovative and effective responses. These meetings, along with the various committee meetings are open to the public, so fellow students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend. Due to COVID restrictions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can attend either virtually or in person.
The Executive Council includes the President, Vice President, 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, and the Vice President presides over the Senate. The Treasurer ensures responsible handling of SG funds, and the Secretary is responsible for keeping records and publicizing the events and accomplishments of the Senate.
Do you have a concern about campus life? Feel free to reach out to your class senators or the executive council.

“As a priest, it’s been a blessing that my first assignment was to serve a college campus,” said UD Chaplain Father Thomas More Barba, BA ’09 ’10. “Young people need to see that their priests are approachable and can connect with them. Being present on campus as a Dominican, walking around campus and being approachable to students, faculty, or anyone who is here, has been a happy, providential thing.”+ Read More
