Dear Faculty and Staff,

The Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity needs your help determining a new name as our division continues to grow and UNT makes progress with its Moving Forward Together plan, the university's action plan for improving diversity and inclusion on campus. We have gained new staff positions and increased our services. Now, we need to rebrand our division. Changing our name is an effort to better encapsulate who we are as a division and communicate how we serve UNT. We want to create a name that is more memorable and establish a more appropriate acronym.

In addition to your thoughts about a new name for our division, we would like to hear what diversity, equity and inclusion mean to you, as well as feedback on the services our division currently provides to the campus community. Our identity is in part dependent on those we serve, which is why your voice is important as we rebrand. Influence our identity by responding to our short Qualtrics survey by June 15.

The Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity is committed to inclusive excellence. Thank you for helping us champion equity, access and engagement to create a welcoming campus community where diverse faculty, staff and students thrive.
