Special Initiatives

Founded in 1890, the University of North Texas (UNT) is a major public research university where students transform their lives through education and opportunity. Today, more than 38,000 students from across the state, nation and world are fulfilling their dreams and getting an excellent educational experience. They choose from more than 225 programs — many nationally and internationally recognized — to pursue their goals of becoming teachers, artists, engineers and everything in between. At UNT, students and their success are the utmost priority.

Spring 2018

Dear faculty and academic staff,

Wow, 2018 has arrived, and I sit here wondering how did 2017 fly by so quickly. In the six months since I arrived back at UNT, I have enjoyed learning about our academic programs, departments and the many areas that advance our university.
