This is the dress code as defined by the The University of Texas at Austin University Development Office Employee Handbook.

Guidelines Statement

Employees of the University Development Office are expected to wear appropriate business attire and maintain a professional image at all times.

The University Development Office has adopted "business casual" dress year-round. "Business casual" is defined as a relaxed version of business dress and is not defined as weekend casual. It is the responsibility of each supervisor to ensure that appropriate attire is worn at all times for the unit that he/she manages and that his/her staff's appearance well represents the University Development Office.

Employees representing our office are expected to dress according to the function and the audience. Employees should wear buisness attire when hosting visitors or when attending meetings on campus and with external constituents.
