The toolkit is designed to assist administrators with various aspects of their duties, including academic, financial, and compliance related tasks. The toolkit includes, but is not limited to, the areas listed below:


The University Policy Office, in collaboration with policy owners, develops, oversees, and maintains the University’s policy process. The contact person identified on the policy description page should be the first contact point for any questions you man have. The official policies and procedures are intended to provide general information. The contact for policies that fall under the Vice President of Academic Affairs is the Faculty Success Office.

Risk Management Services provides proactive support to many areas critical to the strategic, operational and financial foundations of the University. Emergency Preparedness and Insurance Management is responsible for implementing and carrying out programs in support of UNT Risk Management’s mission. Please review the Faculty Emergency Readiness training from the UNT Police Department and Emergency Management that addresses topics such as active shooters, campus carry, medical emergencies, weather-related emergencies, and other resources useful in your job as department chair. Each year, chairs should schedule a session for active shooter and emergency management training for their department.

The CARE Team is a collaborative interdisciplinary committee of university officials that meets regularly to discuss students, faculty, and staff exhibiting behaviors indicative of high risk. The mission of the CARE Team is to assist in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the students and members of the UNT community, support student success, and provide a comprehensive response to individuals whose behavior is disruptive to themselves or the environment. The CARE Team plays a secondary role to all urgent circumstances and should be contacted only after initial notifications are made. To contact the CARE Team directly, you can also email any questions.

Counseling and Testing Services (CTS) consists of two interrelated parts: The Counseling Center and Testing Services. The Counseling Center provides individual and group therapy, workshops, and assistance in obtaining other community and campus resources exclusively to current UNT students. Testing Services provides a wide range of services including traditional admissions testing, computer-based testing, career testing, and other tests.
