Compliance Judgment



An Act of the Regular Session of the 61st Texas Legislature established The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) in 1969 [1]. Section 2 of that act granted the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System “…the authority to prescribe courses leading to such customary degrees as are offered at leading American universities, and to award such degrees…[including] baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees…” This authorizing legislation further stipulated that “[i]initiial [sic] programs and departments will be limited to those which now exist in the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies; provided, however, approval of these programs, their expansion, and initiation of other programs shall be recommended by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System and approved by the Coordinating Board.” The Act, as amended, is codified in the Texas Education Code (TEC) Chapter 70 [2].
