COVID-19 Update

April 8, 2020

Diversity and Inclusion in the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity has partnered with the UNT System to provide all UNT World employees multiple online opportunities to explore diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.

Employees can engage with selected webinars from LinkedIn Learning, UNT Bridge, and Diversity and Inclusion’s new “Tele Talks” offerings and receive credit for participation upon completion of reflection questions. In addition to employee professional development, these resources serve as curricular enhancements for class discussions, syllabi, or other instructional tools.

The virtual resources serve as primers for Diversity and Inclusion’s in-person, interactive learning and development sessions which will resume as soon as possible. To request services from UNT’s diversity and inclusion staff to facilitate classroom or other unit discussions using these resources, or an in-person training from their training inventory, visit https://edo.unt.edu/list-available-trainings or email diversity.inclusion@unt.edu.

Many of our students are facing great hardships due to how COVID-19 is impacting them, especially as their families also face uncertain times. Please consider a gift of any amount to help support our UNT students.

Going above and beyond: Stories from UNT’s COVID-19 response

Brenda Yu wants to give a shoutout to Scott Harris for inspiring his colleagues to support the Denton community during these challenging times. He’s been visiting some of our favorite local restaurants and purchasing gift cards that he can either donate to those in need or use himself once restrictions have been lifted. “We are so blessed to have good jobs,” Harris says. “But while our students are gone, many local restaurants that depend on student traffic to stay afloat are struggling. Let’s help keep the great restaurants near campus and in the Square going for when things return to normal. If you have any other ideas, please share them with all of us. This is the time to pull together. Go MEAN GREEN!”

If you know of someone who is going above and beyond, please share their information with untpresident@unt.edu so we can give them a shoutout.


Don’t forget that healthalerts.unt.edu is updated frequently with new information about how we are working together through this global health crisis.
