COVID-19 Response

March 11, 2020 — I am writing with information regarding UNT’s response to COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. In recent days we have seen continued global spread of the coronavirus, with a presumptive case being reported in our region. With increased testing availability, we expect that confirmed cases of COVID-19 will grow in our region. 

Mission and Priorities

We must work to solidify our standing as a comprehensive research university by enhancing our research productivity. To that aim, the offices of Academic Affairs and Research and Innovation are collaborating to provide a more supportive environment for our research community.

This year, we have several priorities and successes to report:

Career Connect Service-Learning: Opening Doors for Social Justice

Author: Jordan Rogers and Dr. Özlem Altıok

On November 13th, 2019, UNT Career Connect partnered with the Multicultural Center to co-host an event showcasing the work of students enrolled in the Gender and Globalization, a course offered by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. The event was titled “Opening Doors for Social Justice.”

Career Connect Impacts Student Retention and Cumulative GPA!

Author: Scott Peecksen.

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.
