The Student Union operates under the regulations set forth in the Constitution of the Undergraduate Student Body of the University of Notre Dame du Lac. This document outlines the structure and duties of each organization, as well as the way in which funds are to be allocated and used. The Student Union is a complex organization that strives to meet the needs of the Student Body through effective and devoted leadership, but this would not be possible without the guidance of the document. Our Constitution is student written and is amended to meet the changing needs of the Student Body.
