UNT's new Emeritus College scheduled to open this fall

From InHouse, UNT's faculty and staff news source


Ira Glass

Scheduled to open this fall, UNT's Emeritus College will feature not-for-credit courses, lectures, field trips and travel learning opportunities designed for community members age 50 and older.


The college will offer limited courses in the fall and will continue to add classes as it grows. Classes will be offered October to November and February to May.


The Center for Achievement and Lifelong Learning will oversee the college and emeritus faculty will primarily teach the courses. James Miller, a World War II veteran who spent nearly 30 years as a UNT administrator, is the founding dean.


Miller will be charged with selecting an advisory council for the program and overseeing their design of a curriculum and their recruitment of faculty.


Miller retired from full-time teaching in the fall of 1991, after spending 14 years as an administrator in the College of Education. He served as College of Education dean from 1985 to 1991. Miller continued to serve the university on modified service until 1996, including a stint in 1995 as interim dean of what is now the College of Information.


Miller also is credited with developing the concept and drafting the proposal for the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science. TAMS is a two-year residential program at the University of North Texas that allows talented high school students to earn their high school diploma while completing their freshman and sophomore years of college.
