2018 Reaffirmation Teams - Mission, Governance, and Administration Committee

Mission, Governance, and Administration Committee

This committee reviews not only UT Dallas' compliance with the SACSCOC Principles, but also the UT System Board of Regents' compliance. Both the UT System and the Board of Regents play an integral role in UT Dallas' operation, and to the extent they provide the framework for UT Dallas' performance, their performance is also a factor. Additionally, this committee reviews UT Dallas' mission statement, how that mission statement translates into action, and the role of the faculty and the administrative staff in leading the institution.
