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

Dr. Jiyoung Kim in the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism would like to thank internship coordinators Marissa Zoroal and Rosa Malave as well as Dean Jana Hawley for going above and beyond to care for students who cannot complete their required internships due to COVID-19. They organized multiple Zoom meetings to allow students to voice their concerns and are working diligently to prepare for students who planned for the summer internship.

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.
