UNT faculty and staff from 19 courses and programs across 51 sections had students participate in Career Connect during fall 2017 and spring 2018 and the evaluation results are exciting! Based on causal methodologies to assess treatment impacts on student retention, these students were 1.35% and 14.6% more likely to return to UNT the following semester, compared to students who did not participate.

Research security policies and resources at UNT

As a Carnegie Tier One research university, the University of North Texas takes great pride in the partnerships and research collaborations we have built with universities and organizations worldwide. UNT is a place where people from every culture and background bring creativity to advance global knowledge. As just one example, at 4 p.m. Sept. 17 in Marquis 130, we are hosting a reception for this year’s visiting international scholars. We are committed to fostering international collaborative partnerships while promoting full transparency about our relationships.

FY20 Budget

The UNT System Board of Regents met Aug. 15-16 and approved UNT’s FY20 operating budget. I am pleased to share how this approved budget will enable us to accomplish our top priorities in Academic Affairs. All Academic Affairs resources will be strategically invested to support student empowerment and transformation, people and processes, and scholarly activity and innovation.

Thank you for your contributions during the 2018-19 academic year

Dear faculty and academic staff,

Today, as our semester comes to a close, I would like to take a moment to reflect on this academic year and to thank each of you for all of your support in advancing UNT’s goals. While many of us have an achy hand from grading, or in my case tennis elbow from shaking so many hands during commencement ceremonies, it is a time of great celebration.
