Traffic & Parking
The Traffic & Parking Authority (TPA) Committee prepares traffic, parking and safety regulations to prevent or correct related problems on campus and to improve traffic-pedestrian safety. The committee also establishes a schedule of parking fees, parking facility maintenance, and is integrally involved in the planning process for new parking facilities.
The Dining Services Advisory (DSA) Committee discusses ways to improve dining issues on campus to include new branded food concepts/offerings, adjustments to types of meal plans, hours of operation, and other suggestions and initiatives.
The University Space Committee is responsible for implementing policies that promote efficient and effective utilization of all UT space (including buildings and property). The committee makes recommendations concerning the assignment, reassignment, classification, and reclassification of space, as well as the assignment or reassignment of administrative priority for centrally-scheduled spaces. It also reviews existing space-related policies and recommends changes to these policies when needed. The committee’s recommendations are advisory to the Provost, Vice Chancellor for Finance & Administration, and the Vice Chancellor for Student Life.
