Guided by UNT's core values, we strive to be:

  • Equitable and Inclusive – We commit to equitable and inclusive programming, policy review, and support for our faculty and our FS team.
  • Data-driven – We assess our initiatives, our team experiences, and our engagement with faculty and academic leaders to make sure we are meeting their needs. We use data to guide our program development and apply ongoing formative and summative assessments to understand impact.
  • Collaborative and Community-oriented – We engage input to understand faculty needs and support initiatives that develop their sense of belonging.
  • Developmental and Forward-looking – We promote innovative opportunities for faculty to develop new capabilities and to apply their learning.
