Scientific research crucial to UNT's vision of the futureThis issue of Resource magazine clearly illustrates the broad range of scholarship of the faculty at the University of North Texas. UNT continues to strengthen its impact in science and technology by investing in programs such as information science, materials science and the physical, earth and environmental sciences.    Faculty and graduate students conducting research in these diverse disciplines collectively provide the academic and scholarly base that will allow UNT to help meet the future technological, environmental and basic science needs of the North Texas region, particularly in providing the work force of the future.
Art Goven, Ph.D. Interim vice provost for research, UNT   Fiscal year 2001 ended with a continued increase in extramural research funding at UNT. Contract and grant awards for 2001 resulted in a 20 percent increase compared to the previous 12 months. Three-fifths of the awards were received from federal agencies that support research.
    An emphasis on the importance of scientific research and technology will necessarily increase as UNT fulfills its vision to become one of the state's top-tier universities and its obligation to provide the work force and technological advances to promote economic development in the region and state. At the same time, UNT's traditional strengths in the visual and performing arts, education and business will continue to make it the recognized artistic, cultural and educational leader of the North Texas region.
    Given today's reality of limited public resources, the difficult task of achieving the challenging vision of the university's research future will require the cooperation and contributions of all members of the university research community. The diverse research strengths of this institution's faculty members and the continued support of their work by foundations, businesses, industry and government will ensure its success.
