UNT, TWU to collaborate, build new partnerships

From InHouse, UNT's faculty and staff website

UNT and TWU logos

UNT has a new initiative to partner with Texas Woman’s University. Both universities are exploring opportunities that would improve the educational environment for the students, faculty and staff members at both universities, increasing the value of the educational experience and the effectiveness of each institution.

UNT and TWU have a base of existing collaborations in which faculty members already are working together in academic areas in research and creative endeavors. The partnership would seek to extend these existing collaborations and find new ways for the universities to partner.

Jim Poirot, UNT Regents Professor of learning technologies and executive director of the Texas Center for Educational Technology, and Don Edwards, associate dean of the TWU College of Arts and Sciences and chair of the department of mathematics, will work together with the provosts of the two institutions to identify and turn the ideas for collaboration into reality.
