Athletic Activities

Intercollegiate athletics for men. The University of Texas at Austin fields men's intercollegiate athletic teams in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor and outdoor track and field, swimming and diving, and tennis. These sports are administered by the Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Men and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics for Men. The University is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Big Twelve Conference and in matters involving men's intercollegiate athletics is bound by the restrictions contained in the constitutions and bylaws of these organizations.

The Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Men is composed of (a) one student appointed by the chief administrative officer of the University to a one-year term which begins at the start of the fall semester; (b) one former student appointed by the Texas Exes to a one-year term which begins at the start of the fall semester; (c) two individuals appointed by the Board of Regents to four-year staggered terms with appointments beginning at the start of the fall semester in the appropriate even-numbered year; (d) one voting member of the General Faculty who does not hold any administrative position, appointed by and serving at the pleasure of the chief administrative officer as a member and chair of the council for an indefinite term; (e) four members of the General Faculty appointed by the chief administrative officer of the University to four-year staggered terms, with one such faculty member appointed each year and with the term beginning at the start of the appropriate fall semester. Each member of the council serves until his or her successor is appointed, and each member may be reappointed to one or more additional terms. Regental members of the council may not succeed themselves.

Intercollegiate athletics for women. The University of Texas at Austin fields women's intercollegiate athletic teams in basketball, cross country, golf, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. These sports are administered by the Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Women and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. The University is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Big Twelve Conference and in matters involving women's athletics is bound by the restrictions contained in the constitutions and bylaws of these organizations.

The Intercollegiate Athletics Council for Women is composed of (a) two students, appointed by the chief administrative officer of the University to one-year terms which begin at the start of the fall semester, as follows: one student to serve a one-year term as student member-elect and one student to serve a one-year term as student member. The student member-elect shall in all cases succeed the student member by automatic appointment of the president unless a majority of the council advises the president that the student member-elect has failed to attend at least half of the council meetings; (b) one former student appointed by the Texas Exes to a one-year term which begins at the start of the fall semester; (c) two individuals appointed by the Board of Regents to four-year staggered terms with appointments beginning at the start of the fall semester in the appropriate even-numbered year; (d) one voting member of the General Faculty who does not hold any administrative position, appointed by and serving at the pleasure of the chief administrative officer as a member and chair of the council for an indefinite term; (e) four members of the General Faculty appointed by the chief administrative officer of the University to four-year staggered terms, with one such faculty member appointed each year and with the term beginning at the start of the appropriate fall semester. Each member of the council serves until his or her successor is appointed, and each member may be reappointed to one or more additional terms. Regental members of the council may not succeed themselves.

The Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act, an amendment to the 1994 Improving America's School's Act, requires certain coeducational institutions of higher education to prepare annually and make available a report on participation rates, financial support, and other information on men's and women's intercollegiate athletic programs. To review the report, submit a request to the custodian of records in the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Sport clubs. A variety of sports and recreation programs are administered by the Division of Recreational Sports through the Sports Club Program. Where applicable, the regulations for sport clubs are consistent with the requirements established by appropriate national sports organizations. In each sport club, the University reserves the right to adopt additional regulations.

Nonathletic Activities

Nonathletic activities include extracurricular student events, contests, and programs, and elective, honorary, and appointive positions under the jurisdiction and supervision of a University agency. Eligibility rules for participation in each official nonathletic student activity shall be determined, adopted, and administered by the agency having jurisdiction over and responsibility for the activity. Participation in any of the above named nonathletic activities means (a) managing or taking part in an intercollegiate or other public contest, program, or performance under the jurisdiction of an official nonathletic agency; (b) holding, by official election or official appointment, any office, title, or honorary or representative position recognized by the constitution or governing regulations of an official nonathletic agency; c) holding a special all-university honorary or representative position designated as such by the dean of students.
