Campus-Wide Student Organization Recruiting Policy

The University prohibits recruiting at student organization on-campus meetings and events. Employers are prohibited from actively recruiting students; collecting resumes or other student information; sharing your information for the purpose of recruiting; tabling; or posting marketing material at these events on-campus.

Student organizations may invite employer representatives to meetings so that the employer representative can share his or her story with the students; this should not involve recruiting. For example, an alumnus can visit a student organization meeting to share his story as a graduate of UT now working for X company. The alumnus can inform students that his company's job posting is available at the campus career center, but he cannot promote the job opportunity in any way.

For more help with student organization policies, please contact our recruiting team at 512-471-7900 or recruit@austin.utexas.edu.
