Registered student organizations travel for many purposes: philanthropy, retreats, conferences, competitions and for fun! However, it is important to remember that travel is a high-risk activity. With proper risk management, your registered student organization can reduce the risks associated with travel.
UT Austin's Travel Policies are designed to ensure that registered student organizations adequately consider and plan for the safety issues associated with an event or activity involving travel. There are specific steps students must take before they travel depending on their travel destination. UT Austin's travel policies also align with state law (Texas Education Code § 51.950) regarding registered student organization travel.
