Goals for FY2019

Dear faculty and academic staff,

President Smatresk approved UNT’s FY19 budget allocations after thorough deliberations. I am pleased to announce that we are able to strategically invest $50 million in academic affairs to further our university’s goals as a result of this year’s budget process. In the coming weeks, your deans will be sharing with you the investments being made in your colleges.

New wave of hiring shows what you can do, not just says it.

In a recent study, the New York Fed said that only 25% of people get jobs in their majors. As a recent graduate with an integrative studies degree, that was a relief to hear. I studied so many things here at UNT because I loved knowing a little bit of everything! When it came to the job market though, I figured out that I don’t have these weird certifications or years of experience in this one certain thing, and it made me feel ineligible for these jobs I know I would be good at.
