As part of the "We Mean Green" environmental campaign, UNT launched its summer and fall 2009 class schedules as online-only editions for the first time. The schedule of classes has previously been available on UNT's Web site, but this is the first year that UNT has eliminated print editions.
The We Mean Green public awareness initiative was launched last fall to encourage sustainable living across campus.
"We take seriously the idea of creating a sustainable environment," says Rolando Rivas, director of integrated branding at UNT. "We take any opportunity we have to reduce the amount of paper we use."
He added that the online system will be continually updated to be more accurate and up to date than the print version. Special arrangements have been made for incoming freshmen orientation.
Using the online system, students, faculty members and staff can find daily updates for class listings, registration dates and frequently asked questions at www.unt.edu/registration.
Students will also notice that the site has been redesigned to be more user-friendly. The system was tested earlier this year by selected UNT students to check the site's usability.
Several offices and departments at UNT worked together to develop the project, including the Registrar, Admissions, Computing and Information Technology Center, Academic Advising, Student Development and University Relations, Communications and Marketing.
